Video Tutorials -- Pulp Dreams: Making Paper at Home from Old Print and New Fibers

with Elisa Lanzi and Sheryl Jaffe, 2021

This series of five video tutorials introduced students to intriguing DIY methods for making artistic handmade paper at home. The series focused on repurposing old prints and recycling materials – – for tools, for pulp and for paper art.

Students learned how to make essential tools, several techniques for working with pulp, and create papers for works of art. These original papers, made with tree-free fibers and re-purposed prints, could be used for printmaking projects, books, cards and other artistic creations. Students came with an open mind, a spirit for experimenting, a blender and a variety of things they had around their kitchen and/or garage.

A Resource Handout (PDF) was included containing materials list, suppliers, educational resources, and examples of handmade paper works.
