Introduction to Nepalese Pulp-Painting I
with Carol Marie Vossler
In-Person, Sunday, Aug 1, 10:00-11:00am for Adults AND kids ages 8+
During this 1-hour workshop you will be introduced to the wonder of pulp-painting! The various colored pulp is produced from recycled tee-shirts. This technique is inspired by the Nepalese paper makers who format their sheets by pouring liquid pulp into large screens that are submerged under water. The screens are then lifted out of the shallow basin and allowed to dry in the sun. Each participant will be guided through the basic process on how to pour different colored pulp into a submerged screen to create one Nepalese pulp-painting. The use of stencils and two acrylic colors of your choice will also be available to embellish the pulp-painting. *Artworks will be available for pickup 24 hours after class ends.*
This class will be held outdoors, weather permitting. Please meet by the Ceramics Studio (the purple door) at the back of the theatre building.
