Hi All- Just a reminder that our class at DuPage art League
is starting on Monday, April 14.

Here is the "low-down"Three in One: A Taste of Hand Papermaking, Surface Treatments and Bookbinding

If you’ve been intrigued by hand papermaking, paste papers, and book binding, this is the class for you. We will spend the first two classes making paper using Eastern and Western sheet forming methods. In the next two classes, we will explore a variety of surface treatments such as paste paper and suminigashi. The last two classes, we will create hand-bound books using the papers you made in the previous classes.
This is a great “sampler” for beginners and experienced students.
