Paper Making Workshop with Claudia Lee March 14 & 15

Claudia Lee leads a two-day workshop on paper making, limited to 12 participants, on March 14 and 15 at the New Bern, NC studio of artist Janet Francoeur.

This workshop will introduce the student to the pleasure of making paper by hand. Students will learn such fundamentals as setting up a home studio, how to use pulp to create a wide range of papers by sheet forming, laminating, embossing, embedding, and adding inclusions. There will be an assortment of handmade papers for students to see, as well as books, resource materials, and a video. Students will complete the workshop by making a wet-bound portfolio to hold their beautiful finished papers.

Lee has been making paper by hand for 25 years and has spent much of that time sharing her knowledge with others through workshops and published articles. She is the author of Papermaking, from Lark books, and a freelance designer whose work can be seen in more than 20 books, including 500 Handmade Books, due out this fall. All supplies are included in the workshop fee of $185, as well as a box lunch for each day. Contact Craven Arts Council & Gallery at 252-638-2577 for information, and reserve your spot by March 1.

This is the first workshop to be held in Michael & my new studio! We hope you'll join us!
