Large and Shapely Paper from Plants
Monday, August 15, 2022 – Friday, August 19, 2022
TRURO CENTER FOR THE ARTS AT CASTLE HILL
Hula hoops, embroidery hoops, bamboo steamers, take out container lids. These common household items can be used in a multitude of ways to create paper of unusual shape, texture and variety. Common fibers like grass can yield surprising results. We will connect through fiber and tool exploration, time, space, cloth, and paper. All participants will leave with at least one new homemade tool for papermaking at home; large, small, floating or scooping styles.

paper made from plants
I mostly work with paper that I make from fibers grown locally, corn stalks, lilies, ginko leaves, horsetail, onionskins.
Immersed in the process, the tactile experiences, the weather and light all effect my work.
My current work explores the moment in the movement.
Color, light, fibers, paper, connections: these are all the things that keep us connected.
