Paper Pulp Lampshade Workshop

Paper mache 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 paper mache we'll be working with, but lesser known paper pulp - a material shredded so fine, thinner 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 copied at home.

Participants are therefore invited to bring some newspapers with them as raw material - any paper as long as it is not glazed.

This workshop is also a lot of fun for kids.
