Paper Making Workshop
Saturday, September 28th 2019 • 1:00pm - 4:00pm
INSTRUCTOR: Tom Bennick, Idaho Commission on the Arts artist
COST: IBG Member: $40 • Non-Member: $45
LOCATION: Picnic Tables by Maintenance Building
Workshop is limited to 12 participants.
Wear outdoor clothing that may get wet.
The class will focus on the making of paper from different plants. All plants have cellulose, even invasive weeds, and so all plants have the potential for becoming paper. Tom will furnish all the supplies and fibers for the class. The class will consist of an orientation to the different artistic items that can be made with paper, the different tools for making paper, and handouts about paper and paper making with different fibers and inclusions. You will make and take home multiple sheets of paper made from a variety of materials. For those who wish to continue making paper beyond this class, moulds and deckles will be for sale. Fiber may be ordered as well and will be delivered to Boise at a later date.
