About the Event
Start the new year off by trying out a new medium from the comfort of your home. Explore and play with a unique and multipurpose paper: Japanese Yupo. This recyclable, waterproof synthetic paper will have you oohing and aahing as you experiment with various materials on this durable and stain resistant matrix. As an artist working primarily on Yupo, Pamela Jamieson will share her tips and tricks to getting the most out of this medium. At the end of the session, you'll have some beautiful pieces of art as well as an understanding of Yupo and the possibilities it unleashes.
Registration includes two pieces of Yupo which will be available for pickup at 444 Parkhill Terrace in Ladysmith.
