Celebrate Earth Day! Artist Kyla Decatur will lead you through a hands-on papermaking workshop using organic materials and plant fibers. Register online, in person, or by phone at 330.864.5721.
Statement from the artist, Kyla Decatur:
"I am a papermaking artist by trade. A primary component of my papermaking techniques includes creating and manipulating recycled papers and plant fibers. I use the pulp as a central paint for my artwork. Using the pulp as my medium gives me the ability to capture a vision with a multifunctional texturized surface.
The variety of textures and colors throughout my artwork communicates my story."
