This workshop will introduce participants to the technical aspects of making objects out of paper-mache so that they may use this technique to create unique works.
Auroville Papers has been producing beautiful hand-made paper in Auroville since 1998. Over the years we have explored and experimented with many paper making techniques. Apart from the classic stationery items, we make decorative and useful household products, jewellery and unique works of art from paper and paper- mache.
Please dress accordingly, with clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or dirty. Please note that the drying of paper-mache can take from 2 to 3 days, so the participants will have to come back later to collect their finished work or make arrangements with our office to have it shipped to them.
