Pulp Painting

with Bridget O’Malley
Saturday, February 26; 10am–5pm CT

Explore simple ways of incorporating imagery into sheets of paper using pigmented pulps in this in-person workshop. Techniques will include stenciling and screen printing with pulp for easily repeatable patterns, and free-form drawing and painting for more expressive and unique results. Past participation in European Papermaking (previously known as Western-Style Papermaking) or other training in European papermaking techniques, including sheet forming, is required.
