      Dear Friends,

      Over the years many of my friends have asked me to inform them about hand papermaking events here in Santa Barbara. I am hosting a conference here in October for 50-60 hand papermakers. Before the conference we will have classes that you can join whether or not you come to the conference.

      The classes below take place before the Friends of Dard Hunter conference at the Old Mission on October 21-23. For information about the conference, please go to: http://www.friendsofdardhunter.org/western.html or the Friends website: www.friendsofdardhunter.org
      Workshops with Andrea Peterson

      For more information about the instructor or to register for classes, please contact Andrea Peterson at hookpotterypaper.com.

      Papermaking Studio: The Large Sheet 2-D and 3-D
      October 18-20, 10:00am-4:00pm

      This workshop will explore the phenomena of the large sheet. We will explore how to make large sheets in your own home studio/backyard by yourself. In this workshop we will be utilizing a 22" x 30" mould and deckle, but Andrea uses the same process for 48" x 72" paper art works. This process doesn�t need a press or a drying system to achieve fat gorgeous sheets or works of art. We will make large sheets that we will apply fnely beaten pigmented cotton pulp onto as well as making a photographic pulp stencil of our own that will be used during the workshop. Some of the large sheets of high-shrink abaca that we make will be air-dried and these will be utilized for sculptural forms. This is a high-paced workshop packed with all kinds of information and hands-on for the beginner and advanced papermaker artist.

      Fee: $300.00, all materials included
