Join Papermaker Mike McKaskle at Heartwood for a day of Papermaking!
This workshop will introduce students to both the processes and science of papermaking.

A morning lecture (10:30 am to 12:00) will cover the basic chemistry and physics of papermaking while including perspectives on a variety of methods and techniques. In addition, Mike will dive into an overview of natural dyes and pigments.
We will break for lunch from 12:00 to 1:00.
Then after lunch from 1:00 to 5:30 pm, we will put it all to work and make paper.

Hint: It’s a wet process, a very wet process. So wear sandals, river shoes, or plan on going barefoot, you might also want to bring a waterproof apron. What? You don’t have a waterproof apron…no worries we will provide you with a stylish contractor bag! This is a hands-on workshop. Participants will go home with the paper they’ve made. But that’s not all! everyone goes home with a mold, a deckle, and the set of felts that the wet sheets are transferred to. It’s a workshop to get you started with the art, craft, and science of papermaking. The requirements and set-ups for both home studios and more professional settings will be discussed.
Tuition is $125.00 for the day and includes basic tools and materials.
