Writing with Water Workshop | A 2-hour paper making workshop
Led by Artist Ingrid Schindall and Poet Lissa Batista
“Writing with Water” is an opportunity for participants to write new poems in collaboration with the Atlantic Ocean while being inspired by the sights and sounds of the shore. Write original poems under the guidance of Printmaker and Book Artist Ingrid Schindall. Experience the magic of hand papermaking using paper pulp prepared from 100% recycled materials including blue jeans and test prints.
Cut and remix your work, then take the plunge: drop your poem into a vat filled with ocean water and paper pulp, pulling out an original poem reinterpreted by the ocean water. Leave the workshop with 5-10 collaborative pieces on handmade paper.
