Event description

Description

*** Ticket bookings go live on Tuesday 6 June at 8pm. Due to the popularity of the workshops we can only allow two Festival of Stuff workshop bookings per person. ***

Join book artist and papermaker Mandy Brannan to discover the creative possibilities of combining two papermaking techniques; traditional style Japanese papermaking and recycled papermaking.

The masterclass will begin with hand-beating kozo fibres, which add both strength and delicacy to the work. The following stage will be the making of recycled pulps with found papers. Create experimental paper sheets by combining both kozo fibres and recycled pulp.

Participants need to bring 3 hand towels each and a stamped addressed envelope to be posted their papers!

Mandy says:
“I love the endless possibilities of using natural fibres that can be hand beaten, chopped, pigmented, manipulated and pushed 95% of the time – 5% of the time they do their own thing – that’s the nature of natural fibres! The pleasure resulting from making paper by hand can evoke a satisfactory sense of personal accomplishment, one that can satisfy a creative need that comes from working with a medium that can entrance and continue to be open to new experimentation – even after 25 years of making."

This workshop is part of the Festival of Stuff.
