Kit & Video Tutorial: Papier Mache Vessel with Julia Barbee

Use newspaper, flour paste, and a balloon to make a hollow vessel, filmed here at The Sou’wester.

The constraints of her autobiographical journey inform artist Julia Barbee’s subjects and material choices.  She has worked in wearables, performance, perfume, film, food, sculpture, social media, photography, and writing. She co-founded and curated a five-year running art event called Spaceness, which was awarded grant funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. She has an MFA in fiber and has been working in Portland, Oregon for almost two decades where she lives with her husband and two children.
