About this Workshop:

This workshop covers the basic techniques of Western-style hand papermaking, including pulp preparation, sheet forming, couching, pressing, and drying. It includes an overview of decorative techniques, such as the use of pigments, inclusions, layering, and shaped deckles. Pulp additives such as sizing, retention agents, and formation aid are also covered. This class is designed as an introduction for new students and a refresher for out-of-practice papermakers.

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary!

Registration closes January 27, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.

CLASS MATERIALS LIST:

Registration includes a $30 materials fee to cover all of the necessary materials provided in class. Students may want to bring the following optional supplies to class:

  • Personal apron (waterproof recommended, can substitute a cooking apron)
  • Comfortable shoes with good tread (you will be on your feet most of the day and the studio floor will get wet)
  • Note paper and pen (for taking notes)
  • Gloves – your hands will be in almost constant contact with water during the day
