July Papermaking Workshop
Happy Independence Day! In the spirit of DIY Independence, I'd like remind folks the second in the papermaking workshop series I'm doing with Rhiannon Alpers at Bryant Street Studios in San Francisco is coming up. Information below.
Papermaking Basics: Plants and Exotic Fibers
July 14th, 2012 from 10am - 5pm
Taught by Rhiannon Alpers
Materials fee: $10
Held at 1890 Bryant Street, #308 San Francisco
Learn the basics of creating your own handmade paper with exotic fibers from your garden, grocery and local florist. From the harvesting and collecting stage to finished sheets, we'll learn the process for making paper with unique fibers (such as grasses, vegetables, fresh herbs and flowers). Students will get a chance to learn the keys to cook, beat, and form sheets of paper in this one day intensive. Sheets will be air dried and some left to dry under pressure for several days and mailed to students.
Materials are included, and there is a short tool list which will be emailed for the class once you are enrolled.
Fibers for use in this class will be provided and resources given for local sources.
