Learn the art of pulp painting and Western papermaking from the Morgan Conservatory's founder Tom Balbo during this two day workshop! Workshop participants will learn to form individual sheets of handmade paper, prepare pulp paints of various colors, different application techniques, and the role of additives. Throughout the weekend, participants will be exposed to traditional and experimental techniques to create unique pulp paintings.
Tom Balbo is a Cleveland-based artist whose work has been collected for well over 30 years. Graduating from Baldwin-Wallace College with a BA in 1977, he completed his MFA in Studio Arts at Syracuse University in 1980 where he was awarded a Syracuse University Fellowship Grant and a Ford Foundation Grant.
In 2007, Tom teamed up with noted Cleveland-area artists and national hand papermaking artists to improve and conserve the art of paper & book arts educational programming in the US. Knowing that these were art forms worth preserving, the Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory and Educational Foundation officially opened its doors in October 2008.
