Excavated Surface: Layering and Uncovering Handmade Paper – Sue Carrie Drummond

Dates: July 27 – 31, 2020
Studio: Papermaking
Tuition: $775 members / $825 non-members
Lab fee: $75
Class limit: 6

In order to reserve your space in the class, we require a $300 deposit.

In this class, students will familiarize themselves with the basics of Western papermaking and contemporary practices as a way to consider surface. Through a range of layering techniques, we will alter the facade of our sheets by developing texture and dimension. Focusing on experimentation, we will consider multiple approaches to working with stencils, brushwork, and even physical objects as a means to create imagery and leave impressions. The product of this class could be studies, finished unique pieces, or a full papermaking edition depending on the interests of each student.

Participants will learn proper sheet formation, how to work with pigments, and how to use the beater. We will combine overbeaten cotton and abaca in order to learn pulp painting, embedding, watermarking, and blowouts. We will also discuss alternative methods of working for those participants who do not have easy access to a professional paper studio.
