Workshop: ART ATTACK! – results

Children’s paper making

Review by Dinah Beeston:

On Thursday 15 young people came to the studio for a papermaking workshop organised by Mosman Art Gallery, in conjunction with Primrose Paper Arts.

2017kd1First of all Jill talked to them about paper and where it came from and then showed them the basics of papermaking.  They were let loose with a bundle of couching cloths and access to vats of white, yellow, green and red pulp and they made sheets of paper of various colours and combinations of colours.

They discovered that they could add cutouts or use little moulds to add other coloured circles and squares.

Their imagination was unstoppable and the results were wonderful.  They also learned how to use water sprays to make little holes and patterns on their paper.

They all took home a bundle of paper and still have to get the paper that they made late in the day that is drying in the studio.

A note from Dinah Beeston, President of Primrose Paper Arts: A big thank you to Anita and Mosman Art Gallery for their support and organisation of the workshop.  A huge thank you to Jill (Elias) for all the preparation and for teaching the workshop.  And thank you to Mandy for all her help in the preparation and running of the workshop, to Lydia for her help and to Jan (one of the basketmakers and a Gallery volunteer) for being so supportive.
