In the past all paper was handmade, with lovely additions to suit the paper maker or user. Papermaker and sculptor Gibby Waitzkin will work with you to explore the art of papermaking, including screen pouring, pulling sheets, composition, embedding botanicals, pulp painting and final preservation. You'll work with plant fibers and flowers harvested from Duke Gardens to make your individual creation. Participants will have the opportunity to exhibit their work in the annual Art and Nature Exhibit at the Gardens in March 2018. Class meets Saturday from 9:30am to 4:30pm and Sunday from 10am to 4 p.m. Meet at the greenhouse classroom. Participant limit: 12.
