Workshop Description
In this workshop taught in the Pendleton West Papermaking Studio, participants will make waterleaf hand made paper with laid and wove papermaking molds. Participants will learn to form sheets of paper with the mold, couch sheets off the mold, and press sheets. A variety of papermaking fibers will be used, and inclusions may be added to the paper pulp. Paper made in this workshop can be used for making unique art objects or be incorporated into projects in the Book Arts Lab.
