Gail Stiffe Sculptural Papermaking, East meets West


Papermaking traditions grew up differently in Europe and Asia. In this class students will learn a bit about the history of hand papermaking and will make both types of paper. Oriental paper is generally strong, thin and light whereas Western paper is generally heavier and opaque.


Students will also learn how to build armatures and moulds for creating three-dimensional paper forms from wire and cane. These forms will act as a support for both kozo and hemp pulps. Students will leave with a collection of samples and handmade paper sculptures. There will be a materials fee of approximately $25 to cover all of the pulp and some of the other materials.
