About the Event
Experiment with contemporary techniques for making handmade paper. Using recycled shredded paper and other materials, learn how to transform it into pulp and screen it onto a cloth that when dry becomes a piece of paper. Over the course of three class sessions, students will learn how to customize their paper by incorporating dried flowers, herbs, ribbons, and other collage items to create amazing custom sheets. No experience needed. Students will also learn about the history of papermaking and the various cultures that developed it. Creative ideas for use of the handmade paper sheets include – creating single sheets to draw, print on or collage with, custom journals, unique Valentine cards and Christmas ornaments, bookmarks and more!
This class will meet on Tuesdays, September 21, 28, & October 5 from 10am-12pm each day.
