Paper Making with Natural Fibers
Saturday, October 29th
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Join local paper-making artist Janice Agustin and learn how to make your own handmade paper for bookmaking, printmaking and other forms of art!
In this paper-making workshop, you will learn how to produce handmade paper using natural fibers and recycled paper. Janice will cover how to embed dried florals, plants, and other textural materials. Each participant will also have the opportunity to do pulp painting with prepared pigmented pulp and learn a wide variety of stenciling techniques.
With her background in printmaking, paper-making, and book arts, Janice spends time in the studio working with beaten Abacá fibers, originating from banana tree trunks native to the Philippines, to explore different paper-making techniques and experiment with sculptural forms.
