Handmade Paper Workshop

The method of papermaking used in this workshop creates beautiful, delicate tissue-like papers, but it is not a traditional method of papermaking. It requires no mold & deckle, no huge vat of pulp & no felts.

This method makes paper that is fine & translucent. Additions of natural materials & threads add texture & colour to the paper. The result is paper that is ideal for making handmade books & journals, unique cards & wrapping papers.   

Facilitated by Dawna Richardson-Hyde, a practising art professional who has been a teacher in Art and Design at TAFE & University in Canada and Australia for over thirty-five years.

When: Wednesday 21 January | 10am - 4.30pm
Cost: $135.00 (Includes 6hrs tuition, comprehensive Workshop Booklet & Materials Kit)
