Papermaking

In this workshop you will be learning the process of making paper. We will make paper pulp from recycled materials and experiment with adding inclusions, such as flowers, plants, threads, personal effects (old letters or fabrics, torn memorabilia) and other eye-catching items, into our paper. Participants wanting further exploration will learn how to wet emboss their handmade paper using textured materials as well as how to create 3-Dimensional paper objects using common household or personal objects as molds. All experience levels are welcome. [Min. 4, Max. 10]

Although materials will be provided, you can personalize the experience and bring the following: 
  • For making paper pulp: old jeans, colored/raw cotton fabrics, colored or scrap paper
  • For inclusions: any material you find interesting and would like to see in your handmade paper, such as colored materials and textures you find visually engaging, flower petals, plants, leaves, string, memorabilia you don’t mind getting wet (old letters, torn book pages, poems, handwritten things…flower petals, fabric scraps, leaves, string, bits of thread). I play will old handwritten letters, torn pages from books, vintage fibers, wool, plant debris and trash I find visually engaging.
  • For embossing: textures (plastics, metals and glass work best)
  • For molds: personal and household objects (plastics, metals, and glass work best)
