During two days you will understand and practice the main stages of papermaking from rags. So bring your old bed sheets and torn clothes of all colours made of linen, cotton, ramie or viskose.

Cut into small pieces and grinded in the Dutch Machine they will serve you as papermash. Once learned to make equal sheets you will glue and polish them.

Finally you will be able to regenerate your creativity realising different sortes of sheets playing with light and shadow, inserting petals and herbs or embossing your sheets.
