Event description

Description

'Explore the unique qualities of both native and exotic plant fibres, while gaining a better understanding of the processes involved in creating a variety of strong, beautiful plant papers. Participants will be introduced to health and safety and the stages involved in processing plant material for use in papermaking and will form papers using a variety of fibres, such as Abaca, NZ Flaz, Rush, Banana and Kozo. Freedom to explore the taught elements brings individual development and outcomes to this course'.

This course is designed to be an introductory workshop and is suitable for absolute beginners and those wishing to access the facilities to make quality handmade papers. After a brief introduction to the workshop layout and relevant Health and Safety, the first day will be very much a hands-on experience trying out different fibres from across the world, such as Abaca, Mitsumata, Lokta and Kozo while using a variety of traditional mould sizes to make your paper. The second day provides space and time for further learning about processing plants to pulp and layering techniques to produce several small scale works combining the fibres available.

At the end of the weekend, you will have gained knowledge of the papermaking process, sheet forming experience, further creative possibilities with paper and have a selection of beautiful handmade papers. All materials and equipment will be provided, however, please bring some decorative items such as small leaves, threads, small drawings / images or text to individualise your outcomes.

Essentially, please wear good, non-slip footwear throughout the day @ PULP.

PULP is a specialised workspace dedicated to paper art and books - it is easy to access and a comfortable space to work in. Tea and coffee will be provided but participants are asked to bring their own packed lunch or there are shops around 8mins walk from PULP. Local free parking is available and this space is suitable for wheelchair users. Beginners are welcome.

Workshop takes place 10am - 4pm (4.30 clear up) on Saturday 10th + Sunday 11th August 2019
