Taught by Yuka Petz
During this live demonstration you will be introduced to making vegetable papyrus, a proto-paper made solely from fruits and vegetables. This organic and non-toxic art form provides ample opportunities to create stunning compositions that reveal the delicate veining and organic structures of fruits and vegetables. Yuka will demonstrate the entire process of making vegetable papyrus, with time for questions and answers. At the end of the demo you will receive detailed instructions on how to make vegetable papyrus at home.
Yuka Petz’s work straddles multiple disciplines, including book arts, graphic design, and 3-D paper works. She received an MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking from the University of the Arts and a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. Yuka recently relocated to Seattle from New Orleans, where she co-founded SIFT and The Artist Book Collection at Paper Machine.
