Add another element to your paper making skills with color pulp! Explore using color pulp in layering techniques, stencils, stain glass technique, and more. Use pulps of multiple colors to create various compositions working with color, shape, line, texture. The Western style of paper making will be the basis. This class is best suited for those with some experience of papermaking and a sense of design. Students will leave with multiple papers to be used as a base for other work or as complete compositions. It’s fun and fascinating, and of course it is a wet process….come play for the day!
