With the use of a blender we made pulp from cotton and sisal fibres. Throughout the day we explored embossing, colour and adding materials to the pulp. Mandy was on hand providing expert guidance, refining our skills and knowledge. We were truly amazed at how fine we could make the paper. For most of us, our previous experience of making paper was fairly "crude," with unstable outcomes. On this occaision though we were all delighted with our results - especially knowing these results can be achieved with very little equipment most of which is easily found in the home such as old towels, J cloths, and drawing boards.
We all went home with a stack of beatuiful handmade paper, and busy minds deliberating our next step.
