July 15-21, 2018 – The class will explore the basics of papermaking through nature. We’ll work with a variety of plant fibers to form sheets as well use for inclusions and natural dyes. I’ll introduce basic methods, tools, equipment, and sizing techniques while allowing plenty of time to experiment. We will have a chance to harvest local plants so be sure to pack your field guides! The goal is to create a portfolio with nature’s provisions and challenge ourselves to see the potential in our own backyards.

----- THIS WILL BE MY LAST WORKSHOP FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE -------
