PAPERMAKING with Patricia Cheyne:

June 5 & 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This workshop will be about making personalized handmade paper that can be  used in decorations, collage, prints, cards, writing paper, books, and  even sculpture. We will start off making  paper sheets from pulp made from cotton, recycled paper, and plant  materials. Next, we will move to explore expressive qualities of paper making by using embedding, embossing, and laminating methods. You will leave the workshop with the knowledge of how to make paper and the ability to make more at home.

I will be supplying all the art materials you will need. However, if there are decorative materials from your “stash” ( yarn, pressed flowers, natural materials, etc.) you will want to use please feel free to bring them.

The workshop will be held outside in the front area of the gallery.

Fee: $90 for members and $120 for non-members.


Education at ACGOW

Our United in Arts Community Gallery is part of ACGOW’s Community Outreach program. The Community Gallery is a dedicated space where ACGOW hosts artwork from regional schools and community art groups who do not have other venues to display their work.
For each of seven months of the year, at no charge, a different group or school has sole use of the United in Arts Community Gallery room. This opportunity provides an avenue for these organizations to promote the work of their members and students.
Some groups who have showcased in the Community Gallery include area public and private elementary and high schools, amateur art groups, and local non-profit organizations such as the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center and The Frank Ocean Center for persons with developmental disabilities.
Any interested group can contact us at 401-596-2221
