Virtual Adult Workshop: Papermaking (Part 1 of 2)
Inspired by our new special exhibition Isabelle de Borchgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper, this two-part workshop series provides a deeper dive into the different layers of working with paper. From simple stationary to fine art materials, handmade paper adds a personal touch to any project! Join us in the first session to learn the process of casting deckled sheets from cotton pulp, then build on your vision in the second session as we demonstrate different techniques for adding color, texture, and decorative inclusions to your paper.
Please note that while registration to the second session is not required for attending the first workshop, for this two-part series the information and materials covered in the first session are prerequisite for learning the processes covered in the second workshop.
