Class Experience

Students will learn: 
- The terms and techniques associated with papermaking
- How early paper was made and changed throughout history
- How papermaking travelled across the globe
- How modern paper is made

Students will be able to construct a sheet of paper based of teacher’s instructions.
I have been an art instructor since 2017 and have been a papermaker since 2022. 
- A shallow dish (like tupperware or a casserole dish) - 2 cotton t-shirts (preferably plain with no decals) - A large bowl - Sponge - Towels - Old paper (you can pre-shred if you have a shredder) - Water (2-3 cups of water for 1 cup of paper) None of the supplies will be “ruined” by this craft and can return to the kitchen or closet after cleaning! Please reach out about possible substitutions. A detailed supply video with examples will also be available after enrollment.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
History content is referenced from “The Papermaker’s Companion” by Helen Hiebert and "Papermaking: The History and Technique of an Ancient Craft" by Dard Hunter
