Join artist Mary Milelzcik for the Papermaking workshop on Saturday, August 13, 2022, from 10 am – 2:30 pm at Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village. Make your own paper, and recycle it at the same time!
Learn the basics of making your own paper, and recycling at the same time! This papermaking workshop, using a household blender, will introduce you to papermaking using recycled papers with various additives, including cotton linters, and local plant materials. Students will use a postcard-sized Japanese suketa to make several sheets of paper and move on to using larger-sized moulds and deckles and alternative screens to create larger pieces. You are encouraged to bring dried plant material, colored papers, and other items to add to the pulp or imbed in their paper. You will leave with a basic knowledge of papermaking, a variety of papers, your mould, and deckle, tub, felt, shredded papers, a resource list, and instructions on how to make paper at home using an old blender or drill attachment paint mixer. Bring lunch! An hour will be for a lunch break, critique, and Q &A.
