Handmade Paper: 2-Day Workshop
Handmade paper by
About the instructor: Barbara has been making handmade paper off and on for many years. Initially she made paper back in the 70’s, but really didn’t get hooked until June of 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 gathered the equipment & supplies to make paper on her own. She has developed her own practices and procedures to make beautiful handmade paper since then.

Workshop Description: Make your own handmade paper. Using a mold & deckle, paper makers will pull their own paper sheets from a vat of various, available fibers prepared in advance. The sheets will be couched on to pellon and hung up to dry overnight. We will use Abaca and/or cotton fibers with the possible addition of other ingredients such as corn-husks, golden grass or a combination of leftovers from previous paper making sessions.
On day one each paper maker will start by pulling a couple sheets of paper. Then each individual may choose to pull molded paper pieces to make a card envelope set or additional pieces of paper to make a box. You will assemble the envelope set or box on day two.
