Paper Art & Design offers a platform for expositions and sales to national and international artists working with paper or cardboard. Lately we have seen many developments regarding paper art and design. An increasing number of artists and designers are using the unique characteristics of paper; and Paper Art & Design strives to propagate the properties and versatility of paper.
21 March Workshop making Collages with Danièle Knirim
Artist/illustrator Danièle Knirim teaches you how to make compositions from paper, patterns, colour, photos and surfaces. It doesn’t matter if you make a figurative or abstract image. We will discuss your own chosen subject/design. After that we will determine which materials and techniques you can use to make it. There is a choice of different (vintage) types including handmade paper. You can also bring your own collection of papers. Upon participation you will receive further instructions about the designs to bring along.
18 April Workshop making Asparagus peel paper
Asparagus peels are very suitable for making paper. It becomes a brown transparent parchment-like paper. We work with pulp that goes partly in the Hollander (special blending machine) and partly beaten by hand. Then we form sheets and also experiment on the vacuum table. In the end we put the wet paper in a press, or let it air dry. A few days later, you can pick up your own sheets of paper at the workshop (or can be sent).
date 18 April time 14 – 17 location Weimarstraat 56, Den Haag
kosten € 75,- (inclusief materiaal) aantal deelnemers max 6
costs € 75,- (materials included) participants max 8
