This course introduces sustainable approaches to papermaking. Participants will be engaged conceptually in the practice of harvesting from place as content for papermaking. Demos will cover pulp preparation of organics and upcycling used garments and table linens, sheet forming, casting, sculptural construction, spraying, and pulp painting all to support participants’ individual directions. No previous papermaking experience is required.
