Use recycled office waste, raw cotton from Wee Waa cotton industry, flowers and colour to make beautiful stationery! In this class you will learn how to prepare your pulp, pull sheets of paper, press, dry. You will also learn how to add seeds for gift tags or try embossing your wet paper and find out about natural sizing ingredients to enhance the papers quality. The ideas for using the paper you make is endless!
When you make hand made paper you think of all the stationery you can create, but what else. Well there is something special about light and hand made paper. Some papers can be quite translucent while others textured yet strong. As an addition to our paper Making workshop we show you how to pull a sheet of paper that is filled with waves of cotton to creat a marbling effect, or you can use an embossed piece of the paper and carve along the design to cut that design to show light through. After making your paper, we are adding this lovely project where you're provided with a glass tea light cover, the LED light for inside and the paper to create around it.
Practical and fun, this class will is a chance to get creative AND best of all, keep it green by recycling!
ABOUT YOUR TEACHER
Susan Wright is "Born In Paper" and it's fair to say her obsession for beautiful textures, colours and even the smell of paper has quite literally been ingrained since birth. Her Father was a passionate printer and founded the local newspaper "The Byron News", starting it from a small town local paper to a thriving print production. From being a new born rocked to sleep by the hum of the Heidelberg Letterpress, to playing with long shreds of paper - to a teenager where her passion for paper only grew as she was taught the tricks of the trade: binding note pads and collating invoice books for local businesses, or dusting gold and silver dust on wet inks for wedding stationery.
Over the past years in amongst a busy life, Susan has always found time to create and run workshops in a range of paper crafts and textiles. If you'd like to find out more head to her website at http://borninpaper.com.au
