The first day is designed to be an introductory workshop with hands-on experience of making paper from a variety of plant fibres like Abaca, N.Z. Flax and Cotton and then with further focus on processing beautiful Japanese Kozo, Gampi and Mitsumata.
The following day you will learn Japanese four-hole binding techniques using traditional sewing patterns and fine papers. Participants will make a collection of four hand-stitched books to take home along with their handmade paper from the previous day. At the end of this course you will have gained knowledge of the papermaking process, sheet forming experience, further creative possibilities with paper and have a selection of beautiful handmade papers as well as having learned to bind Japanese Four-hole books.
All materials and equipment will be provided, however, please bring some decorative items such as small leaves, threads, small drawings / images or text to individualise your outcomes. Essentially, please wear good, non-slip footwear throughout the day @ PULP.
