Hand Paper-Making Workshop

  • 6th December 2018 to 18th December 2018
  • ORIE STUDIO (Studio Amarachi Okafor) Abuja, Nigeria

I use Hand Made Paper in the production of some of my work.

From the 6th to the 18th of December, 2018, I hosted a Paper Making Project to create an opportunity to share some of my process with some young, eager minds. The workshop was held in collaboration with Association of Visual Arts Teachers in Nigeria (AVATIN).

The focus of the workshop was hand-papermaking- using indigenous fibres gotten from Banana, Okro, Sisal, and Sugarcane.

We had Master Paper-makers Anne Mckeown and Donna Brown from the Brodsky Centre of Rutgers University, New Jersey.

This workshop is the debut activity to precede further planned learning-focused artistic 'Community Meetings that I plan to organise where the same students can work towards deepening their engagement with my work and with art in general over a longer duration.
