Event description

Description

Paper is never a neutral surface. It is so connected with communication that its various forms are synonymous with content. Even the blank sheet implies its future use. Does paper ever stop referring to some kind of message, or is it always a vessel?

In this workshop led by artist Jane Ponsford, learn a little about the history and traditions of papermaking, transform cotton rag pulp into a sheet, recycle the page of a book back into a page again - or into a different form. Explore the medium through a practical workshop with demonstrations and individual attention.

1. Use of vat, mould and deckle.

2. Sheet forming using cotton rag and other pulp.

3. Build other materials into the paper.

4. Colour: stain newly formed paper with inks, or work with previously dyed pulp.

5. Shape / texture: simple embossing and making and using improvised moulds.

Participants will go home with several sample sheets of paper and some experimental 2D and 3D pieces. You will also have had an introduction to the medium, allowing you to take your papermaking further using various methods.

Suitable for all ages and abilities. A handout includes lists of materials, equipment and suppliers.
