Virtual Workshop


We will transform flax roving into beautifully textured paper and then will “shape space” by creating an ethereal sculpture. Flax fiber paper can be combined with book art techniques; it can be used as a substrate for stitching and mark-making with inks and stains. The class is designed to make friends with our inner critic and to have fun. No prior experience required! Registration deadline: 1/9/24

Student Supply List:

- 4 oz. flax roving (natural, bleached or dyed) - 8 oz. Lineo PVA glue - 1 roll of fiberglass window screen 36 x 84 inches

- Cellulose sponge - 2 qt. bowl - Plastic sheeting for a worktable - Absorbent rags - Measuring cups - Spoons

- Water

- Collage Inclusion Suggestions: - Cellulose-based thread - Plant fiber (pressed leaves/flowers) - Decorative handmade paper

Instructor Bio: For over three decades, Jacqueline Mallegni's art practice has focused on handmade paper and sculpture, attempting to translate her sense of the delicate language found in Mother Nature's installations.
