Papermaking workshop at the CCR was a blast!

Our first Papermaking workshop started with inclusions, but the second day we couldn't resist adding pigments with pulp painting. That means the second workshop, starting July 10 (6-9pm) will push even further-- stencils, watermarks, the works! Instructor Marilyn Propp explains the process to Gerry Slavek.

Gerry Slavec and Nancy Barasch make pigmented sheets with inclusions. Our MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design) intern Shanna O'Connor is in the background.

High School intern from San Francisco, Simon Goldsmith, and Shanna, intern from Milwaukee, use pulp painting on their cotton sheets.
