Reclaimed Paper Pulp Lampshades Workshop (1 of 1)

Design Month at AMT continues with Regis Lemberthe of A&Re Design (http://aetredesign.com).  This 1 part workshop focuses on preparing paper pulp paste, a reclaimed material suitable for strong, lightweight designs.


No, papier maché is not just for making spooky halloween masks- it is also a great material for building anything that needs to be both light and strong. Also, it’s only made of old newspapers, and can be given virtually any shape. In fact, it’s not even papier maché we’ll be working with, but lesser-known paper pulp - a counterpart shredded so fine, thiner layers are more solid.

This workshop doesn’t just focus on making lampshades out of paper pulp, 
it is also about learning how to prepare the paste, so that the process may be reiterated at home. Participants are therefore invited to bring some newspapers with them as raw material - anything as long as it isn’t glazed.

This workshop is also lots of fun for kids.
