Paper SamplesSession will run 10-15:00 on both days,

During this in-depth session we will learn the history of paper making from collection of material through processing and to making and using our own papers. We will look in detail at the equipment used to make paper and will all design and make our own deckle and moulds, which you can take home with you. We will look at the potential for using wild and natural dyes to colour your paper pulps and papers. As well as techniques used historically, in modern production and from the wild for sizing paper, or making paper suitable for watercolour works. Giving you all the in-depth knowledge and tools to make your own unique papers whenever you feel inspired to do so.
