Embedding in Handmade Paper
Taught by Ann Marie Kennedy
Explore the interplay between the surface and the interior of a sheet of paper. Similar to collage, embedding allows you to create multidimensional layers in paper. You will learn how to create this effect by using wet paper pulp, textiles, plant fibers, and other collage materials. Using laminating processes as well as deckle boxes, you will embed directly into paper. Throughout the weekend, you will experiment and play with this technique to create unique works to bring home.
Ann Marie Kennedy is an artist and papermaker based in Raleigh, NC. In her installations and works on paper, she uses natural materials to create narratives about human connections and experiences. She is an Associate Professor at Wake Tech Community College and a former resident artist at Penland School of Crafts (2001-4). She teaches workshops in hand papermaking and participates in many exhibits both locally and nationally.
