For the paper maker who has taken Introductory workshops with Swannanoa Paper, this is an Open Studio for paper makers who want to experience a range of fibers that will be provided over this two and one-half day workshop. Participants will be able to work with cotton, abaca, kozo, and bamboo to name a few fibers, and learn to pigment them as well for making colored pulps. In conjunction with CAROLINA FLOWERS (www.flowersnc.com) , a specialty cut-flower farm near Asheville, dried and pressed flowers will be provided for inclusions and embedments in your handmade papers. All equipment will be available to make papers in multiple sizes or for specialty projects of your own design. Book formatted paper deckles are available for making folios for Book Artists as well.
