Paper as Textile, Textile as Paper – Amy Jacobs

Dates: August 12 – August 16, 2024
Studio: Papermaking
Tuition: Sliding Scale, $350 – $1200
Lab Fee: $100
Class limit: 8

This workshop will explore numerous ways of combining textiles with handmade paper. We will use textiles as the basis for various creative techniques such as embedding, embossing, stenciling, blowouts, collage, and pulp painting. We’ll use high and low shrinkage pulps, including cotton, translucent abaca, linen, and flax to experiment with surface textures and different ways of drying. We’ll cover various methods of altering the paper once dry, as well as finishing treatments and surface manipulation. There will be daily demonstrations and discussions, and students are encouraged to explore and experiment. Participants can bring in a variety of fabrics, trim, lace, threads, and clothing from their own collections.

This course is currently full. To be added to the waitlist, please call 845-658-9133, or email us at [email protected].
