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.
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.
It has taken me some time to learn how to edit videos. Self taught mostly at my own pace. Hopefully I will make more videos on Photopolymer platemaking. Let me know if you have any questions
Sandra Erbacher, a graduate student in the art department recently was inspired by Barbara Landes’s work (see post here)with watermarks made with the laster cutter. Sandra uses text in her work, decided that laser cut vinyl lettering would be a great way to use text as a watermark.
