About time!!

I have been making handmade paper since 1991 and have never used a Hollander Beater!!
Why - well I haven't had access to one and cannot afford to buy one!

So, today I was able to use Regina Beater at Morley College. There is a great paper making course there run by Penny Boylan.
These images show the linen sheets being made into pulp which took several hours to beat.
This is in preparation for the Friends of Dard Hunter Keepsake folder which will also include abaca, gampi and daffodil plant fibers ........I will show the progress as it happens!!!
