Description
Class Level: Beginner
Age Requirements: 18 and older
Average Class Size: 10
Teacher: Yoonshin Park

What you'll learn in this paper making class:

Expand your creative expression by exploring a wide range of artistic styles and adaptations of book and paper arts, including papermaking, bookbinding, and artist books. Learn how to form sheets of paper using the Western-style, basic hand papermaking techniques, and different ways to manipulate the formulation of sheets of paper, such as sculptural papers, pouring, embossing, and embedding in this hands-on, introductory course.

Required Materials:The instructor will go over the list of material and equipment on the first day of the class.

Here are some of the items recommended to prepare:
1. Rubber boots & Vinyl apron

2. Mould and deckle (the art center has a couple of mould and deckle to share, but it is always nice to bring your own)
I use these two sizes.
8.5 x11 $79.00 + S/H
5x7 $23.95 + S/H

3. Pellon
This is the instructor's suggestion. There are so many different kinds. As long as it's non-fusible, you could try different thickness.
Pellon 926 Extra-Firm Stabilizer-White

4. Cutting boards
You will use this as a pressing board and a couching board.
Dexas® Polysafe® Cutting Board

5. Rolling pin
To press out water after couching.
Like the chopping board above, the instructor would go with something mold-free and heavy
OXO Non Stick Rolling Pin
