Sustainable Expressions: Paper Casting and Forming

Leah Aegerter

Tuition $1,160
Code S1412-24

In this foundational paper-making workshop, students transform pulp into unique cast-paper sculptures. Starting with dry abaca pulp, we dive into the process of reconstituting, beating, dying, and casting sheets with a traditional mold and deckle. Abaca paper is characterized by long fibers with impressive wet strength, making it ideal for manipulation. We mold the wet sheets onto objects from home, around the studio, or in the environment. Sewing and gluing aids in combining dried paper objects into sculptural creations.
