Craft processes and materials contribute in powerful and meaningful ways to the content of artworks. This exploratory workshop will invite participants to think about the history and narratives embedded in the materials used in their artwork. Participants will reflect on memories of personal lived experiences as they fully immerse themselves in the transformative nature of the western-style papermaking process. From preparing pulp from various fibers to forming sheets and applying color with pigments and dyes, participants will be fully engaged as they create their own meaningful works of paper art.

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.
