Event description

Description

If possible, please bring with you an item of clothing, in natural fibres, that has meaning for you that will be transformed into paper during the course of the day.

Learning to make paper produces satisfying results which can form the basis of books, drawings, prints and objects.

It also offers an opportunity to reflect, work out and rewrite old stories into positive new ones - giving special therapeutic benefits for anyone who has lived, or is living, in difficult times.

In the process, a shift occurs. From cutting rags, through to drawing, writing, printing and assembling, makers become agents of change.

Significant fabrics and clothing become transformed into works of art, opening up insight into difficult experiences and building new understanding, forgiveness and meaning.

PaperShift was set up by Papermaker and Artist Alison Simpson after hosting a short Residency in the Moray Art Centre in Scotland with Drew Mattott and Margaret Mahan of the US- based Peace Paper Project.
