Monday, March 12, 2012 - Oxbow Presents Making Paper, Making Art March 17Join the Oxbow Eco-Center and Treasure Coast Art Association on Saturday, March 17 to learn the ancient art of paper making. This class will help you learn how to control your pulp and create beautiful works of art.
The paper you make can stand on its own as a framed piece or special greeting card, or be expanded to make three-dimensional art pieces, collages or interesting baskets. At this class you’ll have the opportunity to see the multitude of possibilities that result from creating unique handmade paper.
Debbie Perdue and Barbara Fuller from the Treasure Coast Art Association will help you explore your creative side through paper making. Participants will use traditional mold and deckles to create beautiful handmade paper, and learn some of the techniques for layering, imbedding, translucency and opacity, stenciling, pulp painting and embossing.
