Papermaking Workshop - Part 1
This past weekend I traveled to Columbia, MO to take a papermaking workshop with Leandra Spangler, owner of Bear Creek Paperworks. I had seen Leandra's work in an exhibition and knew immediately that this was the artist that I wanted to teach me papermaking. Saturday was spent learning the process --- from cooking the plantstuffs, to using the beater to make the pulp, to mixing the slurry, and finally to pulling the actual sheets of paper. If you are ever interested in learning the process for making handmade paper, I highly recommend Leandra as an instructor.
