This winter Paper-Making and Artist's Book Workshop, taught by the master paper Juan Barbé.
After the success of previous editions, we will repeat experience and will enjoy again its secrets. From 18 to 22 January 2016.
The proposal of the workshop is to develop a book from the sheets of paper manufactured in our own workshop. For it we start from pulps like cotton, esparto, abaca,... And raw materials such us crusts of Mitsumata, Gampi or Kozo that we will process in the workshop following the method of making Japanese paper.
As soon as the sheets are formed, they are intervened in wet with colored pulps by different systems of application.
The students, departing from an idea or a text, poetry, etc., can prepare several sheets following a sequence in which they tell their story in a plastic way. All these sheets will be bound through the Japanese process of external sewing and the artist's book will be formed.
Date: from 18 to 22 January 2016.
