About this process

The first mention of the paper making process is in the records of the Emperor of China in 105 A.D. However recent archaeological investigations, place the actual invention of papermaking some 200 years earlier.

Using simple equipment, this course covers the basics of Mold and Decal paper making, by the recycling method. The use of inclusions such as petals or fibres and colour techniques will be implemented to add texture and interest to your paper.

The course will also touch on the making papers from hedgerow and garden plants.

Students will take home several sheets of their own paper at the end of the course.
