Want to learn how to make your own paper for art, books, or other fun projects? In this course we will focus on simple papermaking that you can do at home using an ordinary kitchen blender, picture frames, knitting hoops, and recycled paper- like test prints and junkmail. We'll also use cookie cutters and stencils, try out some embedding/inclusions, and learn different drying techniques.

Students are encouraged to bring dried plants, seeds, yarn and thread if they would like to add it to their paper. This is a fun and eco-friendly process good for all experience levels and backgrounds. Some of your papers will be wet and students will need to be transported home with you at the end of class. Please wear shoes/clothes that can get wet and messy. An apron is advised— you can choose to bring your own, or use one of the IPRC's studio aprons.
