Seasonal Papermaking Mini-Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
Learn to create handmade paper using upcycled fibers. In this mini-workshop, we’re making mini-paper for the purpose of personalized greeting cards, gifts, ornaments, and keepsakes. Elizabeth will walk you through the step-by-step process of creating your own handmade paper (decorative or beautiful, meaningful, and functional). In this small group workshop, we will cover how to create traditional paper suitable for greeting cards and letters as well as circular paper that makes beautiful personalized ornaments. We will embed items in the paper as it forms to create interesting shapes and shadows using lace, fabric, thread, etc.Who Should Take This Class?
