European Papermaking

with Anna Haglin & James Kleiner
Saturdays: October 23 & 30; 10am–2pm CT

Join us in our papermaking studios again! Learn the tools, terminology, and procedures of European-style papermaking in this in-person studio workshop. Participants will be guided through fiber preparation, the process of using moulds and deckles to form sheets, and techniques for pressing and drying. Our focus will be on consistent sheet formation and safe, effective beater use, thereby giving participants a solid grounding in materials and techniques for future independent papermaking in MCBA’s studios.
