Thsee video clips were taken during last November in the Paper Lab during Barbara Landes‘s workshop. This video is longer than the one specifically about embossing a shape in handmade paperI hope it gives you some ideas for papermaking related projects. This link will allow you to watch it on the YouTube channel and can ben watched in a larger screen.
This is the first of two videos that showcase methods of using handmade paper to cast or form shapes. The video clips were recorded during Barbara Landes’s workshop which took place November 17, 2013 at the Paper Lab in the Art Department’s Art Lofts. Myszka Lewis’s work is featured again as she uses some crochet designs to press into damp sheets of cotton paper. Of course never forget to visit Handpapermaking Organization. The organization and publication have been in existence for more than 25 years. The bi-annual publication is the best resources for papermakers.
On November 21, 2013 visiting artist Wayne Valliere (Mino-giizhig in Ojibwe), of the Lac du Flambeau band of Lake Superior Chippewa and a crowd of supporters launched a birch bark canoe at Lake Mendota, Memorial Union, University of Wisconsin-Madison. For more information please visit the UW-Madison Art Department website. Visit this link to see more photographs of Wayne Valliere’s canoe and the launch.
Barbara Landes gave a daylong workshop demonstrating how to make watermarks. This link will play it on YouTube.com. Students worked with Flexicut and hot glue guns to create drawing and images to use as watermarks. I will gather more photos soon and will link them to this post. Students made some great pieces. For more information on Barbara Landes‘s work, click on this link. More information about Myszka Lewis’s artwork, visit her page. Thanks to everyone that participated.
More than a year has passed since this video was filmed in room 6451. You may find it informative.
Please click on the image above to see samples of books made by fellow students. Currently the collection has a few photos. Trust me, I will add more in the next few days. Please return, it will change your life.
Recently artist Lisa Gralnick needed a photograph for a show announcement. The work is still in progress and we quickly set up a still life in an area with soft available light. The photos needed editing prior to be used for a post card. This link shows a short video on the steps used to prepare the file for a 4 x 6 inch postcard. You can see more of Lisa Gralnick’s photos at this link.
The postcard arrived in the mail!
