unnamed

The Lumsden and District Arts Council is hosting an Introductory Paper-Making Weekend with Gerda Osteneck 

Dates: Saturday, June 3rd and Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Location: River Park Centre, Lumsden, SK

Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm both days

Gerda says… paper-making is an ancient practice offering infinite possibilities for your art projects! Join me and I’ll teach you how to prepare fibre into pulp, make screens & deckles so you can pull beautiful sheets of paper using a minimum of space and equipment. I’ll show you how to create texture, smooth finish, and coloured papers. I will also demonstrate, and provide instructions for some of the uses for hand made papers.

You may bring recyclables such as dried or fresh flowers, old scraps of paper or fibrous material to incorporate into your paper. Cotton and linen scraps can also be shredded for use.

I will provide the fibre and equipment. I will also bring some simple products to add colours to your papers.

On Saturday we will leap into production after a very brief introduction and will make papers of various kinds and sizes. We can hang the paper to dry overnight.

On Sunday we will finish drying and use some of your papers in small projects to demonstrate some creative uses for handmade paper (hummm, might this involve some book-making maybe?!?)

Bring your lunch each day as we will take a short break mid-way through.

If anyone has a collapsible drying rack, please bring that too.
