THE ART OF PAPERMAKING with Jacqueline Mallegni / September 15 & 16, 2012
Handmade paper is an ancient art form. It is the practice of transforming raw materials into something tangible and useful. The art of papermaking is impermanent yet consistent; visceral yet practical; magical. During this two day workshop participants will learn to make Japanese style paper, washi, from abaca, a traditional Asian fiber from the Manila hemp (Musa textiles) and kozo, the bark of the paper mulberry. We will form sheets with a western style mold and deckle, adding plant material of your choice for color and texture.
