The Sunday Paper #461
May 21, 2023
I hosted a lovely group in my studio this past week for the first Papermaking Master Class of 2023.
Diane Gaston, Jordan Fitzgerald, Nancy Crombie and Virginia Green spent the week exploring the papermaking process as we covered many of the topics from my book, The Papermaker’s Companion. We also spent Thursday at Susan Mackin Dolan’s studio – she showed us how to create professional papers without a beater, press or drying system. Read more about this class and let me know if you’re interested in coming next year.
