Using a rolling pin…

  • Paste paper, an age-old method of mixing paste and pigment, layering it, and then using tools to scrape, scratch and draw through the layers not only renders beautiful results on paper but also opens the artist to new creative experiences. Using this technique and others, we will create a collection of unique, personalized papers for your book and collage projects.

In the second workshop, we will learn a classic, versatile yet basic book form to use with our new stash of decorated papers, or any decorated papers you may have.
