Four-Week Class | Make Handmade Paper!

Prerequisites: Beginners welcome! No experience necessary.

Learn the gratifying art of transforming plant fibers into beautiful handmade paper! This class teaches you how to form sheets of paper with a mold and deckle, how to incorporate pigment and recycled materials, and how to create custom watermarks. After understanding the basics, you’ll experiment with shaping paper and creating dimensional forms. Every student finishes the course with a plentiful stack of handmade paper — perfect for bookmaking, drawing, watercolor, printmaking or even luxurious decorating and gift giving. No experience necessary, beginners are welcome. Open Studio* time is included with registration.

In addition to the required supplies listed on the course syllabus, students will also pay a $60 materials fee on the first day of class.
