paper making 18+
instructed by molly nelko
Today almost all paper is made using industrial machinery, but
handmade paper survives as a specialized craft and a medium for artistic expression.
Come and learn not only the process to make your own paper but also a brief fascinating history.
This class is for adults only, 18+.
This class will be offered twice,
Thursday: April 20; 6-8pm
Saturday: April 22; 2:30-4:30pm
Cost is $50 per person. Please bring nonlaminated non glossy pieces of scrap paper from home. Old sketchbooks are a great idea to recycle into new paper. The rest of the supplies will be provided.
There is a minimum of 3 participants and a maximum of 10. If the minimum is not met, participants will be refunded.
This class will be located in the newly available Studio 2 which is located behind Rusty the big red dog on our campus. Look for the blue double doors in the Courtyard of Wonders!

Her work has been in individual exhibitions from Portland, OR to Hilton Head SC, and can be found online. Molly currently lives in Tuscaloosa with her husband, three children, and cat Quill. She has experimented with many different forms of art, and some of her favorites are encaustic, tessellations, and ink wash. Molly currently works in her studio regularly, but her focus has become more about enjoying creative projects with her children.
