Paper / Books Well-Made, Quick, and Easy.
In our first session we will introduce traditional papermaking. The traditional process of making paper is centered around the concept of catching and separating beaten plant fibers from a vat of water. Pulp is suspended on the surface of the water and is then strained from a vat of water by a screen stretched on a frame.
So we have made the paper, now what?! We make a book! During the book session we discuss the history and importance of bookmaking, and the differences between traditional and commercial bookbinding. Next a demonstration of a pre-determined bookbinding style - there are many and all of them are fun and exciting! This introduction will then be followed by a hands-on activity in which students will design and create their own book.
