This two-day papermaking workshop is designed to provide an in-depth exploration of traditional hand papermaking as a form of personal expression. Participants will learn the history and techniques of traditional papermaking by transforming their own clothing into sheets of beautiful paper. Using garments of personal significance, each participant will gain direct experience in breaking rag,beating fiber into pulp, and forming sheets using traditional and contemporary applications of hand papermaking. The finished sheets will be usable for letterpress, silkscreen, etching, laser (electrostatic) and ink jet printing, as well as bookbinding, drawing, watercoloring, and painting.
