Making Handmade Paper

I team taught a handmade papermaking workshop with middle school students along with Ellouise Schoettler and Gretchen Schermerhorn from Pyramid Atlantic Art Center. Above a student has immersed deckle and frame in a vat of dyed pulp to form his sheet.

Here a student transfers his sheet onto pellon, along with others. These papers were made from blue jeans that had been beaten in a huge blender.
