Handmade papermaking is recycling at its best! This workshop offers a creative way to re-use, reinvent and recycle paper scraps into handmade paper. Participants learn the ancient art of papermaking using an ordinary kitchen blender, deckle and moulds and junk papers.We will use these materials to explore the basic techniques of pulp production, forming, couching and air-drying to produce beautiful handmade papers that can be used for cards, scrapbooking, printmaking, drawing, painting, bookmaking and more!
