Deckle Box Papermaking

June 25, 2016 @ 11:00 am to 4:00 pm

$95

Deckle boxing is one of the oldest forms of papermaking. It is a style that is primarily used in Nepal and Tibet. In this style paper pulp is poured into a high walled mould and deckle, placed in a container of water allowing it to be suspended so that more pulp can dropped and mixed in. Multiple colours can be combined to make individual decorative sheets. It allows for experimentation including combination of different coloured pulp, mixes of different fibres and/or the addition of found materials as part of the final sheet. Each sheet is a special painting, different from the previous ones. There will be four sizes of deckle box available the largest being 10 x 20 inches. It is a wonderful technique for making unique book covers or cards and can be used as a starting point for drawings or pastels.
