Books & Paper students learn paper-making techniques

Books & Paper students recently took part in a paper-making workshop with tutor Amanda Brannan.

On the first day the students learned about the historical and contemporary aspects of papermaking. This was followed by an intensive program to learn the skills necessary to become makers of both the Western and Japanese styles of handmade papers.

With the support of Amanda, the students learnt the Western Style of sheet formation using cotton and abaca (manila hemp) fibres and the Japanese Style of sheet formation using Kozo and Gampi fibres. The workshop also covered inclusions, pigmentation, recycling and upcycling.
