Explore the creative possibilities of reusing paper. Learn techniques for making and shaping paper pulp to form your own decorative objects like vases, bowls or other sculptural pieces. Experiment with the paper pulp, adding pigment to colour and decoration techniques. Develop your own designs using simply-shaped found objects as moulds to create a range of individual pieces.

About the course:
The course will start with an introduction about paper pulp and how artists use it today. It will then quickly move into the practical side of making: Making pulp of paper, experimenting with paper pulp and decoration techniques on basic shapes, preparing the moulds, making the final paper pulp objects and finishing the objects.

The course consists 3 sessions, 16 hours in total.
