Paperhouse Studios – Introduction to Western Papermaking

Introduction to Western Papermaking

Together we explore the basics of traditional European-style sheet forming with both a traditional laid mold and a woven mold. You will have a chance to make paper with different sizes and styles of mold and deckles, and will learn how to use fibres such as cotton, abaca (Manila hemp) and Ontario hemp to pull their very own sheets of paper.

Techniques like laminating, shaped sheets and inclusions will also be introduced, with an opportunity for you to bring in your own found materials to experiment with.

Participants will leave this course with 40-60 hand-pulled custom sheets of paper and enough knowledge to continue exploring paper at our intermediate level.
