Papermaking at London Center for Book Arts

We're excited to be doing a few papermaking classes at LCBA, one of which will be open to the public: Introduction to Papermaking. I'll be teaching with paper & print artist Chris Petrone of the Women's Studio Workshop in New York. The first time Chris & I made paper it was for a book that I made at WSW, and it went a little like this:

And then we collaborated to make this lovely stuff, which Chris made for me to use in a model of an 18th century French bookbinding.

Meanwhile I ran some classes with a different papermaker called Chris at LCBA last year, for conservation students from Camberwell and West Dean College. Here's Ashley finally successfully couching a sheet:
