The Sunday Paper #318
June 28, 2020
I recently stumbled across these paper samples I put together for my book Paper Illuminated 20 years ago. They show a range of ways to make paper translucent: punching, tie dyeing, embedding, piercing, layering, printing, applying beeswax, using the old cut & pierce technique, and more. My book, now out of print, is getting harder to find, but I did find a copy on Amazon (it’s not cheap). You’ll find it here, along with a list of books about paper in my Amazon* shop.
I gave a one-hour virtual studio tour through the Creative Arts Workshop on June 19th. Thank you to those of you who attended! Here’s the replay… sit back and relax and enjoy an overview of my studio, a papermaking demo, and a peek inside of a few of my artist’s books.
Kirigami (a type of origami that adds cutting to folding) principles show up in so many places! This show coating looks cool, but won’t be seen much. It serves a practical purpose though: gripping ice and other slick surfaces.
Join me on Tuesday, June 30th at 1pm EST (12noon CST, 11am MST, 10am PST) for a one-hour online workshop via Zoom. We’ll work together in real time to create a paper weaving as we cut two complimentary papers into strips and weave them back together like a puzzle to create a work of art. Here’s a link to the facebook event page, where you can find all of the details and register. If you are not on facebook, you can register via Zoom here. This is a pay-as-you-wish event, and a link for payment will be provided during the event.
