Papermaking with Plant Fibers

Sat, October 14, 2017, 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Course meets for 2 sessions

In the past all paper was handmade, with lovely additions to suit the paper maker or user. Papermaker and sculpltor Gibby Waitzkin will work with you to explore the art of papermaking, including screen pouring, pulling sheets, composition, embedding botanicals, pulp painting and final preservation. We will work with plant fibers and flowers harvested from Duke Gardens to make your individual creation.

Participants will have the opportunity to exhibit their work in the annual Art and Nature Exhibit at Duke Gardens in March 2018.
