Join us for special educator mini-sessions of papermaking in conjunction with Art Explorium. Learn to create unique sheets of (Western-style) paper with moulds and deckles and a variety of fibers pulped in a Hollander beater. The history of papermaking and its contemporary uses as an art-making material will be discussed. Be prepared to get wet, have fun, and make sheets of art paper that can be used for drawing, painting, printmaking and 3-D constructions. Paper needs to dry overnight.
Preference given to educators participating in the Mānoa Heritage Center/Art Explorium workshop on July 9.
No previous papermaking experience necessary.
Limited to 6 participants per two-hour session. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the wait list.
