This paper can also be used for book arts, dying, and painting techniques. The possibilities are endless! No-experience with papermaking or sculpture necessary.

INSTRUCTOR: Jacqueline Mallegni creates mixed media minimalist sculpture with a focus on the concept of ‘the spaces between’ exploring the perception of a landscape. What is it we, as humans, choose to see. The spaces between us and them, inside/outside. The space between contemplation and chaos. The sculptures she creates are small installations made with rattan, foraged natural materials, Japanese style handmade paper, cast flax and silk roving fiber, embellished with mono-prints infused with lichen and sumi ink. The intention is to evoke a sense of place and one’s relationship to that place. To pause and reflect on the beauty within. Her work is ethereal in nature inspired by Asian aesthetics and philosophies of wabi-sabi (acceptance of transience and imperfection) and yugen (deep awareness).
