Paper, Pulp And Sculpt

November 1, 2020 – November 7, 2020

Nicole Uzzell

This workshop is designed for those interested in taking sheets of handmade paper and creating 3D forms. Students will discover a variety of ways to make armatures by incorporating found objects, both natural and man-made. Overbeaten flax and abaca are the primary pulps you will use, capitalizing on their translucent and high shrinkage qualities. Participants will add indigo and walnut dye at the conclusion to add natural color to their final sculptures. In order to incorporate personal elements, a hunter/gatherer approach will be encouraged by taking advantage of the grounds at Arrowmont and/or bringing pieces from home. Open to all skill levels.
