PAPERMAKING

HORAY!

This is something that I have always always always wanted to do! Before we jump straight into it though, let me say this! Remember that little exhibition I did, Are You Lost Yet? Well, this was all happening at the same time as my field 1 term. Camilla was fully aware of this, and like I said before Danielle and I were the ones to hang the show and then the ones to invigilate it, and this coincided with my field days on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Thankfully Camilla was okay with this. Anyway,

I was so excited to start this. I remember back when I was doing GCSE and my sister was doing an art course at a college and she came home and showed me all the paper she had made, I was blown away. Now it’s my turn! Tom Martin was holding this workshop day for us which made a nice change, he’s always a good tutor to work with. That day, Felicity became y paper making buddy and from that day onwards we kept meeting up and sneaking into Tom’s workshop and making as much paper as we could!! It was magical.

There’s the techniques in my photo’s above. Camilla had already told us to bring in some paper etc, and when we got there we all joined forces and began ripping it all into lots on tiny pieces in order to blend them all up with some water. Here’s some photo’s of how it all went down!

As you can see I was a very very very busy girl, and I loved every minute of it! It was beginning to get to a point with this module were I really wasn’t enjoying myself, but thankfully this day pulled me out of this rut. There’s so many things I can do with this paper, but I’m attending one of Tom’s book binding workshops next week so I think i’ll out my paper to good use.
