art handmade paper

Personally I have learned the handmade process of paper making in 1995 from a German artist, who organized a master-class during our participation in a textile symposium in Poland. Later the Saint-Petersburg artists became better acquainted with the art of handmade paper making due by Finnish artist, and St. Petersburg art researcher Olga Kasjanenko who organized several master-classes with subsequent exhibitions in the galleries of the Union of Artists in summer 1999.
It turned out that the technology is very simple, primary matters to make the pulp to be found everywhere, the only problem was the workspace and as soon as I got an atelier, I eagerly started my experiments. My first work was exhibited at the International Itinerant Exhibition Bread Project, which we invented in 2001 with help of the St. Petersburg Bread Museum. Afterwards this technique is my favorite one.
Since 2000 I started to organize the summer practice in handmade paper making at the Institute of the Decorative and Applied Art for students of the chair of Art Textiles, making myself handmade paper and supervising students experiments. In 2002 at an International Symposium in Germany (First Textile Festival in Gorlitz) I organized the master-class on my variant of technology of paper casting. Similar master-class I presented on the TV channel Rambler. During their summer practice my students themselves organized master-classes on handmade paper at the annual festivals of the students of Art Institutes We have came, and participated in 2002 at the festival of modern art Master-class at St. Petersburg Manege.
