In this beautiful paper workshop, you can learn how to make paper from recycled pulp by hand; with the same technique used for hundreds of years.
The art of papermaking began almost two thousand years ago in China, where the technique of pulping plant fibres was first discovered. More than a thousand years passed before paper reached Europe in the 14th century.
Making handmade and artistic paper is a creative activity that provides endless opportunities to play with the composition, thickness, various decorative elements. Flower petals or glitter can be embedded into the pulp and the finished paper can be given a lacy structure under a press or pressed between the metal plates to have a smooth surface. The liquid pulp can hold special-shaped sheets of paper or play with watermarks.
In the workshop, we give an overview of different techniques and possibilities. Each participant can make 3 sheets of craft paper (A5 format). If you wish, you can come back and try it more later, or we will advise you on how to make paper at home.
NB! Although the number of participants is limited, sometimes we can accept larger groups. If you have such interest, please contact us, and we will work it out together.
