Spirit Papers: Mapping Place
Saturday, April 11, 2015, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
With Velma Bolyard, papermaker and fiber artist based in New York's North Country
In this one-day intensive we will explore the art of the eco- or contact print, on paper. Students will learn the basics of creating prints using the flora available in their ecosystem, essentially making a map of the plants inhabiting this particular place on the east coast. Each student will prepare bundles for the dyepot, using found metals and local waters for mordanting.
