Paper of the Week: Nepalese Batik Lokta Paper
This is another paper in the supply kit for my online class Paper Illuminated. This Nepalese lokta paper is available in four sizes from Mulberry Paper & More.
In the Studio:
Here’s what we’ll be turning this paper into in my online class, Paper Illuminated, which begins March 8th. I just opened enrollment this week and am pleased to report that I have a nice group of participants forming from sea to shining sea (Canada to North Carolina, Alaska to New Jersey)! There’s a link to a free tutorial at the bottom of the page about the class. I invite you to take a look, try it out, and join us if you like. One of the unique aspects of this online class is that you’ll make new paper friends from around the world in our private facebook group!
- Registration for this on-line class, Paper Illuminated, is now open and class starts March 8th. Here’s a video I made about the class.
- Prefer to work with me in person? Registration for the 2017 Red Cliff Paper Retreats (Sept 8-10 and Sept 12-14) is now open!
- I’m offering a short (and sweet!) workshop at the San Francisco Center for the book on February 4th.
- Do you still need a calendar? The year has begun, the content in the Twelve Months of Paper Calendar is everlasting and calendars are 50% off.
Speaking of the Twelve Months of Paper calendar, if you have one, have you made the January project, the Window Star? Here’s a variation that Kathleen Hartley made and shared! Gorgeous!
Lori Goodman has been making paper as long as any of us and has created some incredible installations over the years. Here’s an overview of some of them on The Phythians.
Here’s another Top 10 list on Creative Boom that I think you’ll enjoy. Not everything is paper, but this work by Parth Kothekar is just stunning.
Also on Creative Boom: oooh, take a look at these illustrations that paper artist Sam Pierpoint created for Australian wine labels. I’ll grab a bottle if I ever see these here in the states!
Here’s an interesting article about the history of mummies and papermaking.
