c3: Papermaking Residency

Emerging Program member

The c3: Papermaking Residency was established in 2014 to engage artists with little or no experience in hand papermaking, and offer them an opportunity to learn the craft and stretch the limitations of what the medium can do. Provided with instruction, guidance and technical assistance from a professional papermaker/artist at Pulp & Deckle studio, residents create and exhibit new work outside their usual area of practice.

Each year, four artists are selected for intensive month long residencies during which they work in the Portland, OR based Pulp & Deckle studio. Lead papermaker, Jenn Woodward provides guidance for residents to help realize their individual projects. She also educates and assists residents with all equipment use, fiber preparation, cleaning, and any other studio needs. Upon completion of the year-long studio residency, a group exhibition is held at c3:initiative or a partnering location.

Artists are selected via open call and a rotating jury process. Finalists will be interviewed by c3:initiative and Pulp & Deckle staff members. Notifications regarding selected artists will be made in March 2018. Selected residents will be required to sign a contract prior to their residency. All residencies will be scheduled from May-August 2018.

The residency focuses on illuminating possibilities within the medium of papermaking and encourages experimentation, risk, research, and collaborative learning. The group exhibition highlights hand papermaking as a contemporary art medium.

Selected artists-in-residence will receive:
- An introductory group workshop at the Pulp & Deckle studio with fellow papermaking residents
- Technical assistance from lead papermaker, Jenn Woodward
- A one month residency at the Pulp & Deckle studio
- A materials stipend of $250
- A group exhibition with fellow papermaking residents
