Explore light, texture and patterns with this introduction to the ancient techniques of making papyrus. Fruit and vegetables are sliced, cooked and laminated together to form translucent sheets. You are encouraged to play with your food and discover the complex beauty and natural wonder of common/uncommon fruits and vegetables. Book making examples as well as preservation and display possibilities, prints and frames will be discussed. Students will be responsible for attending to their press 2-3 times a day, tapering off as the papyrus dries.
