MASTER CLASS: Enhanced Paper Decoration

Marbling experience helpful but not required

Explore several types of paper decorating techniques including under-painting, stamping, and paste patterning. Learn how to combine these varied decorative methods to the greatest effect as they create truly unique papers. In the early 1980s, renewed interest in paste papers emerged as part of a renaissance in arts of decorative paper patterning. Paste and other decorative papers are most commonly used for traditional crafts such as bookbinding as well as in calligraphy, printmaking, scrap-booking, collage, rubber stamping, and origami. Participants are invited to bring previously marbled papers to add a paste paper layer which creates outstanding results.

Please note: Enhanced Paper Decoration takes place over four days (October 10-13) as listed above. The printed newsletter lists incomplete dates.
