Paper for all Artists – Well-Made, Quick, and Easy.
October 6th, 2013 – Fall Paper Workshop – All levels welcome
In this fun afternoon session we will introduce traditional and experimental paper making techniques. The traditional process of making paper is centered around the concept of catching and separating beaten plant fibers from a vat of water.
