Maria Patrizzi’s Art of Paper Casting

What an exciting session these artists had at Gail’s Center! It’s the time of year when my mind turns to papermaking- my setup is really limited to fair-weather work. That means this little injection of inspiration is just what I needed right now.

Gail Harker Center for Creative Arts

In April, guest tutor, Maria Patrizzi, came to share her unique expertise to a group of students for a fully packed day of papercasting. Maria is a specialist in papercasting vessels and other dimensional items. The students are in Level 4 Diploma – Experimental Research for Advanced Design. At this level they are researching themes, working with a variety of media and are beginning to work in a 3 dimensional format. At the end of the day everyone completed samples and were really excited about the many options of the design process. They went home to build a dimensional item themselves. Maria will be teaching a 5 day class here next summer in 2014. Let us know if you would like to be on our list of interested people!!!!!
