Summer Art School 2018: Become a Master Papermaker!

Learn to make your own paper like the great artists of the past.  

Inspired by our exhibition of Renaissance and Baroque drawings, have a go at pulping, pressing and patterning to produce your own papers from scratch.  Find out about the pigments and other materials artists made… before there were no art shops to buy supplies from and try some of them out for yourself!
