Making Handmade Paper

Learn to make handmade paper at my art studio on April 17. Details here. Sponsored by the Arts Alliance of Three Rivers.

Made some paper today, using junk mail and dried lupine flowers from a wildflower arrangement I had for last weekend’s Studio Tour, and a few weed grass cuttings. I could make tons of paper from what needs to be weedeated.

Gathering papermaking materials: junk mail and flowers, blender, mould and deckle,  batch pan.
