Handmade Paper Card and Envelope: 2-Day Workshop
Handmade paper and envelope by
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 gathered the equipment & supplies needed to make paper on her own. She has developed her own practices and procedures to make beautiful handmade paper since then.
Title: Handmade Paper Card and Envelope:
Instructor: Barbara DiSalvo
Dates: February 8 and 9
Days & Times: Saturday, 1:1:00 am - 3::00 pm
Sunday, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
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 practice sheet of paper. Then everyone will pull paper pieces molded to make a card & envelope set. You will assemble the envelope set on day two.
Fees: $110 Members; $120 Non-members
Materials: All materials included to make several sheets of handmade paper and envelope set
