first steps in Paper Making!

A weekend workshop got me hooked! The teaching and demonstration of the craft resulted in a number of very straight forward examples, and the vertical growth of my enchantment with the craft!
The results of my embryonic steps  are in these photographs. Too bad I cannot share the feel and the variety of crackling each paper does when handled, directly depending of the pulp source used in its making.


  1. It's a feeling I knew quite well, in the distant past.I never sized my papers as I didn't use them for paintings, but I recall writing letters in Biro or crayon to a similarly art-y friend.And I just *know* you'll do some clever things with yours.

  2. I never understood the attraction to papermaking until I actually tried it myself. And then, wow! It's so addictive and fun. Knowing you, Anna, I'm sure you'll be doing amazing things with your papers!

  3. Oh, I haven't made paper in such a long time! Yours look wonderful, especially the one with the flower!

  4. It has been a long time since I made paper too but I do remember the joy of it. I loved making it most from plants cooked up and used. You have some great papermaking resources in the US and some amazing papermakers to research if you want to do more. My favourite is Catherine Nash and now I might need to add your name to the list!
