Handmade Paper: 3-Day Workshop
About the instructor: Barbara has been making handmade paper on and off for many years. Initially she made paper back in the 70’s, but really didn’t get hooked until June 2012 at Feather River Art Camp, a beautiful Sierra Nevada environment near Quincy, California. That is where she spent a week of hands-on paper making. It was such a rewarding experience that she did it again in 2013. Over time Barbara has studied at other venues and gathered the equipment & supplies needed to make paper on her own. Since then she has developed her own practices and procedures to make beautiful handmade paper.
