#4007 - Islamic World Papermaking Workshop by Radha Pandey, June 17-18

$ 250.00

Saturday and Sunday, June 17-18, 2017 from 9 am to 4 pm. There is a $45 materials fee, payable to BookArtsLA.

In this workshop, students will learn about Islamic-world papermaking, and its role in the history of papermaking. On the first day, students will be introduced to fiber preparation and the papermaking technique we will use during the workshop. The day will be spent with everyone making his or her own stack of paper.

On the second day, simple surface finishing techniques such as brush dyeing and burnishing, will be shown and these will be applied to the finished sheets. Everyone will leave with a sampling of the various techniques on their own Islamic style papers.

All skill levels welcome.
