Introduction to Western Papermaking

Adult Papermaking Workshop

It’s paper – but not as you know it…

Led by expert papermaker and book artist Lucy Baxandall, this course is inspired by our summer exhibition, Drawn to Perfection. Learn the basic skills required to make sturdy sheets of cotton-rag paper suitable for drawing and other media, perhaps adding your own embellishments, and go home with a collection of sheets to dry and use for your own projects.
