Learn the basics of hand papermaking with a variety of pulps and processes in this 3-hours workshop with Detroit-based artist Megan Heeres. Focusing on the western-style of papermaking with both traditional plant and “invasive” plant material, students will learn how to prep pulp, pull sheets, press sheets, and dry sheets. At the end of the workshop, each participant will either take their handmade paper home to dry with some instruction or pick them up once they are dry. Come cool off and get creative in some pulp!
 
Heeres's current practice is rooted in paper-making where her passion for experimentation, fascination with entropy and chance, and love of science all meet. She works with unwanted plant species and the trash found where these plants reside to create art objects, installations, collaborations, and experiential workshops. Heeres’s art practice and professional endeavors have connected into a cooperative way of working with the community inside and outside the studio. She participates in projects locally in Detroit and nationally, most recently at Xenoform Labs in San Francisco and the Broad Art Lab at Michigan State University. Heeres has been an artist-in-residence at the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences, the Michele Schara Residency, the Ragdale Foundation, the Santa Fe Art Institute and Women’s International Study Center.
