In this workshop, we’ll combine traditional and innovative papermaking techniques with multiple disciplines. Participants will learn to make paper for cyanotype, gilded metal leaf, and patina artworks, and will manipulate paper pulp using a printerly approach to create ‘pulptypes’ and layered imagery.
These processes will be introduced through demonstrations and examples, after which participants will work on individual projects using the techniques shown. One-on-one instruction will help each person realize their own projects.
This workshop is excellent for anyone with some papermaking experience. Group discussions on participant work will take place throughout the week.
May Babcock graduated from the University of Connecticut in Storrs with a BFA in painting and printmaking and has an MFA from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. Her practice combines printmaking, hand papermaking, and book-arts techniques. Babcock exhibits nationally and internationally, and is the founder of Paperslurry.com, an active blog dedicated to promoting the art and craft of hand papermaking.
