What You’ll Do

The broader culture has all but forgotten the age-old art of making paper by hand, but artist Carol Cole has not.

Participants will make several sheets apiece, adorning each with colors and collage elements suited to individual taste.

  • Make Paper From Scratch
    All materials are provided as you learn to make your own functional paper, which will be left to dry in the studio before it is mailed to you within a few days.

  • Dress Comfortably
    Be prepared to stay on your feet and get your arms wet up to your elbows during the paper-making process.
