A class for adults. Learn the basics of making craft paper by hand using simple equipment in this workshop with artist Philippa Mitchell. You will begin with making pulp using recycled and other fibres, then cast small sheets of paper. The class runs from 10am to 12noon and 1pm to 3pm. Lunch from 12 noon to 1 pm.
Next, you will be experimenting by trying various techniques including other objects such as petals or leaves in the pulp and making embossed sheets with flat objects or shaped sheets with stencils. You could bring flat objects such as keys, brooches, feathers or leaves/flowers if you wish.
All your handmade paper will need to be taken home to dry it out over the following week.
Wear old clothes and bring rubber gloves if you have sensitive skin, as it can be a fun but wet and messy business!
