Handmade Paper & Books
Is it paper, or is it art? It’s both, as teaching artist Richard Aldorasi helps students explore ancient techniques of paper making.In Handmade Paper & Books, students create their own handmade linen papers and explore historical methods of decorating, including 15th century Turkish marbling and 12th century Japanese Sumanagashi marbling, embossing and decorative flower embedding. Students then use an 18th century letter press to print their projects. The Handmade Paper & Books residency also covers environmental issues, from “quiet fire syndrome” to paper recycling.
