www.bookbombs.netI’ve been working to get Mary on the SAI roster for a couple of years, ever since I saw her demonstrate at Philagraphia. It was abundantly clear that she really knew her stuff AND with her interest in art and social activism, I was able to convince her to come teach this class at WSW.
July 8-12, 2013
Explore a variety of ways to incorporate text into your handmade paper, as opposed to printing directly on the surface. We will explore several pulp stenciling techniques including making photosilkscreens which, when used with finely beaten pulps, are capable of getting fine text and image. We will work with hand-drawn text, stencils, lead type and watermarking to create imagery and impressions directly in the wet pulp. Techniques of embedding, layering and embellishing will also covered. We’ll combine all of these to produce richly layered pieces where word becomes image.
