paste papersMonday November 18, 2019: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Tuesday November 19, 2019: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Tired of the same old gift wrap? Then this class is for you! Paste papers are made by applying a mixture of paint and pigment to damp paper and then using tools to create pattern and texture on the surface. Different methods will be demonstrated to guide you as you create your own paste papers with vibrant colors.

We’ll use methyl cellulose in a paste recipe that’s easy to recreate on your own. We’ll be working with acid-free paper, so you can even use the papers in your bookmaking or other craft projects.

Each participant will leave class with a collection of paste papers and a basic knowledge of paste paper technique. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials we use. No previous experience is required – this is a great class for a beginner.

Cost: Members $40.00 / Non-Members $50.00

Materials fee: $15.00

Supplies: Apron, old credit cards or gift cards that can be cut into and used as design tools, plastic utensils, wood grain or other tools to create marks.

Note: Bring the the supplies if you have them – don’t feel obligated to buy anything. I’ll have extras available.
