Caddis Larvae - Light is a collection of caddis made from a diversity of natural or made materials. The base of each caddis is a tube of hand-made paper into which the larva is glued, and onto which the materials for the particular caddis are attached.

The heavy background paper is 400 gsm, so is perfect for tearing into ‘chewed’ looking shapes and treating with various impact tools to mark its surface prior to painting with watercolours.
