I am enormously proud to be bringing Andrea Peterson to my studio to teach
papermaking this April. I think of Andrea as a Living Treasure in the
field of hand papermaking. She can teach almost anything in this field, be
it how to grow a papermaking garden, how to do sculpture with high-shrinkage
abaca, how to process fibers for Japanese papermaking, or how to paint with
unbelievably rich colors of paper pulp. The latter is what she will be
teaching in April. Here are the details:
PAPER ON PAPER: Draw, Paint, & Stencil with Cotton Rag

creating vibrant and fluid images. We will use a variety of tools that for
drawing, painting and stenciling with the cotton rag onto a base sheet. This
workshop is for the student at any level.
