Many contemporary artists use paper wrapped over birch panels or paper as a collage element in their work. This three-day workshop goes one step further by providing participants experience with making their own paper and using the paper as a support for their work. Students will explore the ways in which paper can be wrapped, glued, stretched, pulp painted and made into sculpture. Then, using wax glazes, oil sticks and a variety of mixed media techniques, students will transform these amazing supports into works of art.
