Intro to Papermaking
Arts & DIY
Create beautiful, handcrafted papers! In this workshop, participants will make handmade papers using discarded paper waste. The class will cover the basics of papermaking techniques, including fiber and pulp preparation, how to form sheets using a mold and deckle, and pressing and drying techniques. Each participant will make as many sheets as time allows. No papermaking experience required. Expect to get wet and messy!
