Last Look: Wheatpasting Demo with Burlesque of North America
In Eric Baudelaire’s Sugar Water (currently on view), a billposter spends 72 minutes methodically wheat-pasting three images in a fictional Paris Metro station. Want to learn how to wheatpaste faster and closer to home? In this workshop, Wes Winship and Mike Davis of acclaimed local print collective Burlesque of North America will demonstrate basic wheatpasting techniques, showing you how to use found paper objects and your own original artwork to create large scale collages and wall murals.
The workshop is free and open to the public and begins at 2pm.
