A day papermaking with textiles with Jonathan Korejko Friday 18th May 2018 10.30 – 3.30
Papermaking with Jonathan Korejko
Course Title: PAPERMAKING WITH TEXTILES
For people who love textiles and want to expand into new areas. You’ll learn how rags can be recycled and mixed with colourful threads, wool, cotton, denim, hessian, silk and felt to make beautiful papers. Threads and swatches of cloth will also be added inside layers of rag pulp, and colourful surface dressings will make each sheet that you create unique, employing a variety of techniques like embossing, laminating and embedding. Your papers will be suitable for further applications like hand/machine embroidery, books, and construction projects. This is an excellent opportunity to work with a papermaking artist with many exclusive recipes which come from years of experience and experimentation. You will be given tips and advice on how to set up your own papermaking unit at home. The course is intensive, fun, and very creative, ideal for people who thrive on the versatility of textiles. All-comers welcome.
Jonathan Korejko is an well-known papermaker who teaches all over the UK in National Trust and RHS properties, craft centres, museums, colleges, schools, craft, trade fairs and literature festivals.
