The Primrose Paper Arts committee are working hard to offer some great new workshop opportunities for 2018. Plans are underway, tutors have been approached, photos are arriving and details are being compiled.
Meantime, whilst you wait with bated breath for our workshop announcements, we are delighted to publish our 2018 Tips & Tricks (T&T) event calendar.
Do you own a Gelli plate, don’t use it often enough and would like to participate in a group day where experimentation is the main focus? Perhaps you own one but have never used it and need some guidance. Or have you already produced some fabulous designs and want to share your experience, pass on some skills and enjoy seeing how other people use their plate to print?
Whatever your level of expertise we want to see you at our Gelli plate T&T day.
How are your paper-making skills? You might be great at producing a range of A4 sheets from recycled paper, mountboard, plant fibre and more but what do you know about paper sizing? Why do paper-makers use size? What is it exactly and how do we know when to use it? Our paper sizing T&T will set you on the right path. (Webmaster note: Yep, I need this one!)
OK, here’s a question: When is a sheet of A4 paper not just a sheet of A4 paper? Well, when you get to our paper ‘transformation’ T&T day of course! We’re suggesting that participants bring along a variety of papers and a ton of ideas for them. Let’s all show how we can change flat sheets into something completely different.
Do you make boxes, bags, wearable paper art, embossed cards, sculptures or anything else? Come and share your ideas, and pick up some new ones, at our A4 paper exploration T&T day.
Ever tried paper felting? No, not sure what that entails?
Our Joomchi T&T will be a fun day of playing with paper layers, paper colour mixing and more. I’m sure we are going to see the more experienced people creating multiple layers, holes, paper pockets and more. So get yourself along to our Joomchi T&T and see what it is all about. By enrolling in advance you will find out what materials you need to give this a go.
