Some shots of my newest artist book, Wildcat Canyon. It's a unique book, made of handmade paper with pulp paint and inclusions, using some of the techniques I will be demonstrating at my upcoming pulp painting workshop.
This book is an example of something I encourage people to consider when making paper and pulp painting - is the piece finished when the paper is dry? Or does something more happen to it (drawing/printing/painting/collage....). In this case, I assembled the various experiments into a book.
There is still room for a few more people in the workshop on July 27. Hope to see some of you there!
The Bryant Street Studios Papermaking series has started up again! I'll be teaching Pulp Painting on July 27 - info is below. To learn more about other papermaking workshop at Bryant Street Studios, please check here.
CLASS DATE: July 27th, 2013
CLASS TIME: 10am - 4pm
1890 Bryant Street, San Francisco CA 94110
Finely beaten paper pulp can act just like paint to make brilliant imagery in handmade paper. When dried, the painting is an actual part of the paper, which can stand alone or be transformed further through drawing, printing, traditional painting, or whatever you can think of for a mixed media creation. This class will cover various pulp painting techniques including direct painting, stencils, collage inclusions, and other means of pulp-based mark-making. Sheets will be air dried and some left to dry under pressure for several days and mailed to students.
CLASS FEE: $150
MATERIALS FEE: $10
Materials are included, and there is a short tool list which will be emailed for the class once you are enrolled. To register, visit here.
