Spinning Across Cultures: Paper to Textile
March 11, 2017 - March 12, 2017
March 11-12, Saturday & Sunday, 10am-4pm
*** WORKSHOP IS FULL***
Paper’s role in book and textile arts is often underrated and assumed to be flat and docile. In this class, handmade paper takes center stage as it is sliced, spun, crumpled, and woven in an evolution of ancient East Asian arts of jiseung (paper cording and twining), joomchi (paper texturing and fusing), and shifu (woven paper cloth). Through history and folklore combined with hands-on experimentation, students will learn the impact of paper beginning with its birthplace in Asia through its contemporary incarnations. These insights will better inform the material and techniques offered, while pieces made in class can become pages of artists’ books, fabric for art garments, printing elements, and artwork ready to hang. Everyone will leave with samples and new skill sets in the possibilities of paper.
No previous experience required.
