Making Handmade Paper: a fun art workshop in July

Saturday, July 21, 2012 from 10-4 pm
Taught by Elsah Cort at her studio in Three Rivers

This workshop will introduce you to making paper, using various materials including recycled paper, dried plant materials, flower petals, and scraps of this and that. We will learn about the process of simple paper-making, producing paper that can be used for other art projects such as collage, or simply as an artwork in itself. We will make our own moulds and deckles, the screened frames used to make paper. Using blenders, we will make our paper batches and learn how to include color and other materials to add texture and interest. It’s a slightly messy process, so wear comfortable work clothes. Bring a sack lunch. We will work inside and outside, enjoying the natural panorama of the Sierra Nevada foothills and meadows.

Registration fee is $75.
Personal checks, MC, VISA and Discover accepted.
