An opportunity to learn the basic elements of the art, as artist Lin Chau leads you through the process of mould and deckle making, preparing plant pulp fibre, pulling a sheet and couching it, then pressing the paper. The core of the workshop will be in the first hour, with a further 30 minutes available for questions and discussion. All age groups are welcome, with no prior experience required, but numbers are limited, so booking is essential.
The booking fee of £15 includes a starter pack (UK delivery only) with a simple meshed frame, 4 different kinds of plant fibre, a packet of Orkney native wild flower seeds, some pressed flowers, and 4 pieces of J-cloths. You will need some home items as well, details here.
Numbers are limited to 20, and booking is essential. Here is the booking link.
