LIVE DEMO: Vegetable Papyrus

with Yuka Petz
Wednesday, July 29; 6-7:30pm CDT

This demonstration-only workshop will be an introduction to making vegetable papyrus, a proto-paper made solely from fruits and vegetables.

Vegetable papyrus is created by cooking out non-cellulose materials and drying under pressure. This organic and non-toxic artform provides ample opportunities to create stunning patterns and compositions that reveal the delicate veining and organic structures of the fruits and vegetable you work with. Discussion will include different techniques and potential uses and participants will receive detailed instructions and tips for making papyrus at home.
