Botanical Paper: Morven

- $130

ONE SPACE LEFT: EMAIL OSEURAL@ARTSCOUNCILOFPRINCETON.ORG TO CLAIM IT!
Artists will become immersed while creating beautiful paper overlooking the gardens at Morven. The focus of this workshop is to make handmade paper with botanical materials collected on the grounds at Morven. Students will learn how to form paper sheets using wet beaten pulp made from abaca. Abaca is a form of plant fiber that is very similar to the banana plant. It is the “Western” Japanese paper. It has a translucent quality and is very strong. Papermakers will come away with a stack of beautiful creamy off-white paper embedded with botanicals or plain for other uses. Comfortable shoes and clothing should be worn. Please bring a bin or large tray for transporting paper home. Participants are welcome to bring along any pressed flowers or dried leaves on hand. A materials fee of $20.00 will be paid directly to the instructor.
Please note this workshop takes place at Morven [55 Stockton Street in Princeton].
Registration is exclusively through the Arts Council of Princeton; for more information and to register, please visit www.artscouncilofprinceton.org. For more information on Morven Museum & Garden, visit http://historicmorven.org/. Member rates apply to current members of either organization.

Butterflies: Watershed

- $30

Join local artist and ACP instructor Susan Hoenig in a one-day workshop inspired by some of the Watershed’s many “residents”. Students will look at examples of many beautiful butterflies from around the world. They will be treated to a reading from “Cocoon and the Butterfly”. Children will then use liquid watercolors to paint their own butterflies on special paper. These will be attached to a stick so they can be waved in the air as though they are flying. They will also use oil pastels to draw butterflies or moths. What a wonderful way to great ready for the Butterfly Festival on August 8th!

This workshop is part of ACP’s Saturday Sampler for kids at the Watershed (Water, Webs & Wings!). Register for one, two, three, or all four (for the most fun!). Art classes meet in the Watershed Center of Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. The Watershed Center is the new LEED platinum environmental center of the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. Located on the Watershed Reserve in Hopewell Township, the center showcases sustainable energy features such as a green roof, geothermal heating and cooling and an innovative wastewater wetland.
