Papermaking in 3D: Beyond the Flat Sheet (Spring 2014)
Paper can be created and modified into amazing three-dimensional sculptural structures. Working in MCAD’s Papermaking Studio, students in this class will be introduced to techniques for working with both Eastern and Western fibers to make three-dimensional work.
Students will have access to fibers including cotton, abaca, and flax and will learn to use plaster molds to create paper forms and volumes, as well as flexible molds which can be used to manipulate paper into a variety of shapes. Other tools will be demonstrated and used, including a vacuum table and a pulp sprayer, both used to imbue handmade papers with a variety of textures and dimension.
Students will also investigate the design and creation of their own plaster or latex paper molds created from clay, wax, and found objects, as well as using surface decoration and dyes to create striking and beautiful effects on the surface of the paper. Students will be encouraged to investigate experimental methods of working. This workshop is open to all skill levels. No previous papermaking experience required. / Facilities fee of $25 and materials fee of $30 in addition to class tuition. / Open to students ages 16 and above.
This class has been canceled due to low enrollment. We encourage students to register as soon as possible for future classes.
