“Autobiography of landscape” – Papermaking with Indigenous Fibers – Lecture and workshops with Robert Possehl

Join the Watts History of the Book Program for a lecture by Wisconsin paper artist, Robert Possehl, on paper making with indigenous fibers. The lecture will be held in the MacMillan Reading Room at the John Carter Brown Library at 6pm. Refreshments will be served, and the lecture is open to the public.

The lecture will be followed by a workshop for RISD and Brown University undergraduate students on paper making with indigenous fibers, including Rhode Island corn husks! The hands-on workshop will be held at the RISD Book Studio at 48 Waterman Street on both Friday, October 7th and Saturday, October 8th from 10am-1pm. Participants in the workshops are highly encouraged to attend Robert Possehl’s lecture on Thursday, October 6th, as the material for the workshops will be discussed in-depth at the lecture. The workshop is free, and it will be held over two days in order to allow more students to participate. Students are not required to attend both days.
