PM260 Western Papermaking

The gap between ancient, non-mechanized hand papermaking practices and the modern-day, industrialized methods of making paper will be bridged by demonstration of techniques such as embossing, embedding and pulp painting. Assignments will focus on proper pulp preparation using fibers such as cotton, abaca and bamboo, sheet formation and how to use handmade paper as both a substrate for other media and as the medium itself. Printmaking Elective Option; fall semester. Pre-reqs: None
