Start to Finish Papermaking
with Ashley Pastore
In this workshop we will start at the very beginning by beating our fiber. We will then learn the basics of sheet formation, pigmenting pulp and stenciling. We will then press our paper and load into the dryer. This is a great workshop for beginners who would like to see the entire process.
