Papermaking Primer

An ArtMake Workshop….

May 14-15, 2016
from 10 – 4 pm each day

Instructor: Elsah Cort

Held in Three Rivers, California.
Class size is limited to 4-6 persons.

This workshop will introduce you to making paper, using various materials including recycled paper, dried plant materials, flower petals, and scraps of this and that. We will learn about the process of simple paper-making, producing paper that can be used for other art projects such as collage, or simply as an artwork in itself.

We will make our own moulds and deckles, the screened frames used to make paper. Using blenders, we will make our paper batches and learn how to include color and other materials to add texture and interest. It’s a slightly messy process, so wear comfortable work clothes.  We will work inside and outside, enjoying the natural panorama of the foothill canyon.

Registration fee is $165, early-bird* rate is $150.
Personal checks, MC, VISA and Discover accepted.
