March 15, 2014 Intro to papermaking workshop 1-4pm

Three kinds of paper made by our extremely productive intern.
We have received some requests for beginning level or refresher classes so we added one in March and may add one in April. The paper studio has some nice new moulds and felts to work with this year.

Learn how to create your own unique sheets of (Western-style) paper. We’ll start by making a pulp using our Oracle beater, and then pull sheets. We’ll do a few plain sheets so you can get the hang of it, and then explore the possibilities of handmade paper until we run out of material.

Paper does need to dry overnight in our restraint system, so plan to come back to retrieve your dry sheets. If you won’t be able to make it back to the studio, bring a flat-rate envelope with postage so we can mail it to you.

Wear comfortable shoes with good soles — our floor can get slippery. Wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting wet.

Email bostonpapercollective@gmail.com with any questions.

We will require a minimum of four people to run the class. If not enough people sign up, we’ll refund you. If you must cancel for any reason, contact us at least 48 hours before the class is scheduled to run.
