Paper Exploration

July 20, 2020 - July 24, 2020

5 days

Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Taught by Lisa May Tobin

Ages 6-8

Our class will get a brief history of the development of papermaking and how it has become a unique art form. We will explore some of the many plant materials used to create hand made paper. Then by blending cotton and abaca (a relative of the banana plant) students will form sheets with paper pulp, then apply these sheets to forms that will be provided. The class will be able to experience and master the techniques of paper production and create a sculptural work of art that they can take home.
