Kate Aitchison ~ Artist in Residence

APRIL 9 – 23, 2023

Kate will be working on expanding her ongoing research in regards to the Paper Genome Project – which involves exploration of papermaking fibers in regards to specific places. In this case, Kate will be researching the capacity for papermaking with different invasive species found on the ranch as well as exploring the surrounding agricultural landscape for papermaking possibilities. She hopes to share these experiments with ranch guests and also allow for guests to make their own paper. She will also be leading a number of different afternoon workshops including papermaking, drawing, bookmaking, and relief printing to add to the overall experience of springtime at the Elkhorn. Through this experience, you’ll see the ranch and its plant life through a different lens as you ride, walk and relax.

Workshop activities add creative flair to your Arizona dude ranch vacation week. Mark your calendar for April 9 – 23, 2023 and contact us to sign up!
