      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

      This is an intensive workshop focusing on understanding and using pigments
      (wet and powdered) with a finely beaten cotton rag. Papermaking agents such
      as retention aid (dry and wet), sizing, and formation aid will assist in
      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.
