Art and research Week 49: Mexican paper rituals, Amatl and Papel picado

Louise Atkinson’s Week 49 post (Weekly Blog Club Week 41) is about   a type of paper and methods of image-making that are less familiar probably to most European artists. It is fascinating to read about an ancient material that involves ritual in its making, as well as the images made with it being part of rituals. Louise also tells how trade between Spain and China brought a new material that was adapted to old image-making traditions.

Weekly Blog Club was set up in early January 2012 to encourage people to blog regularly, and especially to encourage those working in and with the public sector, charities and voluntary organisations in the UK to find their own 'voice' through writing.
