Description

This workshop will introduce the novice to the techniques and materials used in making Fine Art papers for use in hand book-binding, calligraphy projects, card making and box making.

Participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of making hand-made paper, hand-marbled paper and hand-made paste papers. Participants will learn how to make paper pulp using recycled paper and paper pulp sheets, how to form the sheet using a deckle and mold, and how to make poured paper sculptured sheets with additions.

Instruction will also be given in the fundamentals of forming marbled paper patterns, Suminagashi marbling, and making Simple Starch Paste for making paste papers. Participants should be prepared to bring an apron and notebook for taking notes. Participants will make approximately 25 sheets of paper to take home along with their course note handout.

The Instructor for this workshop will be Nancy Anderson Trottier, a former student of Father Catich. Trottier is an internationally recognized book arts instructor who specializes in making artists' books, letterpress collage prints, and calligraphic broadsides using her own handmade papers, hand marbled papers, and handmade paste papers. Trottier is a codicologist, earning her MA in art history from the University of Iowa, specializing in the history of 16th century French printing. She is a former Newberry Library Consortium Fellow and is currently conducting two independent research projects on the Hardouyn Press for The Library of Congress and The Kislak Center for Special Collections and Rare Books at The University of Pennsylvania.

You can read more about her on her website, ducksinarowpress.com.
