ClassGraphic If you’ve ever looked at handmade paper to purchase, you know how expensive it can be, but making it yourself is easy, fun, very inexpensive, and allows an almost limitless amount of creativity! In this hands-on workshop, using new and recycled materials, you will learn how to construct your own paper making screen, prepare the vibrant, textured "paper pulp," and create new sheets of paper. You can create your own colors, add dried leaves or flower petals, fortune-cookie fortunes, ribbons, thread, and many other small items, to create paper that is beautiful and practical. This paper is ideal for craft projects, mixed media, printmaking, or for personalized stationery or cards!

You will leave this class with the knowledge and information needed to make your own beautiful handmade paper at home.
