What you'll learn in this paper class:

Decorative Paper: Suminagashi, Paste Papers, & Paper Marbling

Sign up to learn a variety of techniques to make decorative papers from all parts of the world! Students in this course will spend two weeks learning each of method of decorating paper: suminagashi, paste papers, and paper marbling.

Paste papers are one of the earliest methods used to decorate paper. Using sponges, combs, brushes, and found objects, a mixture of paste and acrylic paint is surface painted on to paper. Suminagashi is a traditional form of paper marbling from Japan that creates lovely and unpredictable patterns. Paper Marbling is a more advanced design technique that has been used by paper artists since the 12thcentury. Pigments are floated on a viscous water-based solution and carefully transferred to paper to produce mesmerizing patterning, similar to smooth marble.

Decorative papers are a wonderful craft that can be create wonderful pieces of fine art. They can be used as book covers, end papers, and as a base for handmade prints.

Please note that class fees cover tuition as well as many consumable studio supplies and most materials that students will use throughout the class or workshop.
