Papermaker Akemi Martin shares techniques of fine papermaking. You'll learn advanced techniques to make watermarks and work with bright pigments while using old cotton clothing to make your own recycled paper.
We'll tour our neighbor Pace Paper's impressive studio where paper works are fabricated by Chuck Close, Donald Baechler, Jim Dine and many other well known contemporary artists.
This isn't your kitchen-made construction-paper-and-blender papermaking, this is a chance to see how the pros do it. You will most likely get wet slinging paper pulp on the Gowanus sidewalk, so wear something you can get messy in! You'll come away with beautiful, quality paper, and you'll have a vat-load of fun!
