This workshop covers the many exciting possibilities when using pulp as a print medium to make unique works on handmade paper. Utilizing finely beaten and pigmented paper pulps, the artist can work in similar ways as any painting or drawing medium the way inks are used in making monoprints. The results can be stand-alone paper works with finely drawn imagery, or combined later with traditional print techniques. There will be a variety of demonstrations such as print transferred drawings and manipulating pigmented pulps to create washes or larger surface areas. Come to learn, experiment and discover another world of working with paper!
