Two-Day Adult Studio: Paper Making and Book Binding with Alyssa Sacora
TWO-DAY CLASS—Saturday, August 5 & Sunday, August 6
Are you curious about how paper is made? Wondering what you would do with a stack of handmade paper after you create them? Join us during this two day workshop and learn how to make paper and make your own book. The workshop includes a tour of the exhibition Pulp Potential to discuss creative concepts and be inspired by the works on view.
Participants will take home handmade paper and books, a reference hand-out, and the skills to continue on with the craft.
About the Instructor
Alyssa Sacora (she/her) is a crafts person exploring paper making, book arts, basketry, and natural dyes with locally available plants. She encourages reciprocal relationships between people and plants through teaching hands-on workshops at her studio, The Patchwork Underground, in Fairview, North Carolina and other area venues. Guided by tradition and curiosity, Alyssa is finding ways to create a sustainable art practice that takes care of the soil, minimizes resource use, and inspires others to do the same in their own way.
