We will cover the papermaking process and surface finishing techniques like dyeing, sizing, and burnishing on traditionally-made papers. Detailed handouts will be emailed to everyone about the process, the history, as well as supplies and materials should you wish to pursue this style of papermaking at home; along with readings to further your knowledge of the craft. Everyone will receive a sample of the paper made during the session.

Teaching Artist: Radha Pandey
