The Program

Learning objectives

Transitioning from textile to paper as a medium of expression, Sandrine Beaudun discovers a true dialogue between material and artistic expression. Paper serves as a guiding thread to explore fibers and plants used in its creation.

By the end of the training, the participant will have assimilated:

  • Acquisition of knowledge about the fibers used and techniques necessary for creating vegetable paper
  • Introduction to the Japanese papermaking process
  • Contemplation of paper as a support or work of art
  • Technical knowledge to produce two vegetable inks and dye fibers in the mass

Content of the program

The training focuses on the creation and production of sheets of vegetable paper through an introduction to the traditional Japanese technique of making washi paper and the use of two Asian fibers: «Kozo» and «Lokta». It also involves connecting with the energetic dimension of plants through color, learning fiber dyeing in the mass to create colored sheets. The methods employed include sessions of historical and technical information, personal practice, observation, exchanges, and sharing. Personalized guidance will enable each participant to learn at their own pace and develop their own creative space.


with Sandrine Beaudun

Sandrine Beaudun, after studying textile surface design, worked on creating prints for haute couture, designing patterns for tableware, and developing trend notebooks for Parisian style agencies.

In 2008, she intuitively felt the need to return to the question of the medium and explore it as a fundamental and more personal source of expression. She then learned the Japanese papermaking technique, focusing on Kozo fiber (Japanese mulberry).

For her, the "sheet" became a field of experiences and encounters with life in its most creative form, where imagination and creation could be expressed. The "sheet" becomes transformed, a skin, and an artwork, both in its composition and in the time it takes to create it.

This process then establishes itself, creating a physical dialogue with the material from production to exhibition.
