On Thursday, Jan 12th, 2017 from 11-4pm NE8 participating artist, Sonia Farmer will offer a free workshop on Large Format Papermaking at the NAGB, on the heels of the successful workshop conducted a few days ago at the Lyford Cay International School.
In the workshop you will learn how to process papermaking fibers by hand to form large format sheets of handmade paper. Farmer will lead a demonstration on how to beat kozo fibers, prepare a pulp mixture for sheet forming, and direct several people to work together to pull 90 x 50 inch sheets of paper on special large format molds.
No need to come for the entire day—Sonia will lead separate demonstrations for each sheet. Drop in, contribute, and learn something new!
All materials will be provided—just bring strong arms!
