Papermaking in Essex

Traveled out to the Essex Print Studio for a Sunday workshop. It wasn't as far away as I thought it was.... British Rail had me go out through Liverpool St, but I came back on the circle line  and then bus from Leytonstone....
The workshop went really well and the participants and Lynne , the studio owner, created some great pieces. T'was a bit nippy in the studio but we all forgot that as the paper making began.....

The workshop gave them a good understanding about the usage of different fibres, coloration and Western style sheet formation. They went into experimental mode very it when this happens....the resulting papers....brilliant!!

The next workshop here is on Sunday the 23 April..... and this one will also introduce the way to create Botanical papers with plant inclusions.
