with Winsome Jobling
Explore basic papermaking from processing fibres to sheet-forming. Then explore a range of techniques to incorporate colour and imagery into the paper as you make it. Techniques will include watermarks, stencils, pulp-painting and pigments in this one day workshop.
Darwin-based artist Winsome Jobling works primarily with handmade papers and experimental printmaking. She uses many local plants to make her papers, such as Spear Grass, Banyan Fig and the declared weed Gamba Grass and has been making paper since the early 1980’s.
With her paper forming the ground for her prints, Winsome’s work is a haptic collaboration with the natural world and a response to our impact on it. As she describes, ‘The images incorporated during the wet sheet-forming process are meant to both complement and complicate the ground of handmade paper. The works become an interplay between the method and the message about the nature of the human impact on the world around us.’
