September Papermaking Workshop

Hello Everyone!

Well, we are very excited to have held the inaugural workshop in our new studio...Fine Rag and Plant Papermaking with participants from three states! We made Western style papers from cotton rag, black denim, abaca, bird of paradise, curly dock, iris and kapok...with many combinations, multiple dips, and laminations thereafter.

Participants had the opportunity to create for specific projects which included artist books, papers for editioned etchings and scrapbook pages. Fun!
What a wonderful group of participants~ Thanks to all for helping us celebrate our grand opening!

Rob is currently teaching a Photography Portfolio class, just starting up and going great. We are truly looking forward to the rest of our fall offerings. Hope you will j oin us soon~
