Try to imagine a world without paper: it’s almost impossible. Paper is a vital part of everyday life. Would you like to learn how to make this wonderful medium? Handmade paper is a rich and versatile medium as a “stand alone” craft or it can be used as a base for many other arts and crafts disciplines. In this workshop you will explore the different mixtures and textures for making paper by hand.
You will learn how to form paper for crafting and artistry and you will make several sheets of paper to take away using materials such as cotton, plants and herbs (whatever is in season) along with unusual materials such as onion skins and flour bags. You will also learn how to make coloured and colourful paper.
You can even be shown how to make you own equipment for making paper at home.
No experience is required as you will be shown the techniques of the craft during the workshop.
