We will explore fiber preparation, research and design possibilities as the students explore their personal creative expression. Students will be guided through exercises designed to stimulate ideas and images that will be incorporated in their final projects Course Format The format of this course will involve technical demonstrations to familiarize the students with the technique and formal language involved in working with handmade paper. Power points presentations and artist videos will be shown as a means of exposing the student to fiber artists and the inspiration behind their work. Course Outcome At the completion of this course students will have a working knowledge of papermaking techniques from the preparation of fiber to completed works.
