This adult workshop will introduce techniques of handmade papermaking. Learn to pull sheets with a mould and deckle and press the paper to create your own sheets of handmade paper. Using recycled fibers and a blender we will make a variety of paper samples to take home. Learn the basics of papermaking to continue experimenting in your own home studio! Participants will get wet as we will be continuously working in water.
