This experimental papermaking workshop will center oral histories that the participating artists are carrying, seeking, or working to decipher. These oral histories may be tied to family, place, or relationships. Through sketching and writing, these narratives will be abstracted and communicated with alternative and classic fibers. Participants will be asked to broadly consider which materials align best with their narratives, collect them, and bring them along as potential pulp possibilities. Pulp painting, stencil pulp painting, watermarks, inclusions, sheet formation, and play will ground the workshop.

In order to reserve your space in the workshop, we require a $150 deposit. Registration is on a first-come first-served basis, and you can read about our refund and cancellation policies here.
