Monday, August 12
6 p.m. to 9 p.m
Instructor: Lorrie Grainger Abdo
We offered this class for the first time earlier this year and had so much fun it’s on the schedule again! Take this crash course in papermaking to create beautiful sheets of handmade paper using pineapple, banana peels, marigold tea, and other natural fibers and inclusions (that can all be found in your kitchen!). You’ll see how these natural fibers are beaten down in preparation for papermaking, while learning how to prepare your own at home. After pulling several sheets, students will help load them into the hydraulic and drying presses. Each student can expect to make a small stack of paper that can be used for future projects or as a piece of art in itself. Sheets will be ready for pick up a few days after the class.
