Paste paper workshop
I attended a zoom retreat with the Handmade Book Club. The topic: making paste paper. I’ve made it in two workshops over the years, but all the paste and materials and space was arranged for me. It’s a different story making my own paste and setup at home! I’m glad I did it. I got a good feel for what designs I enjoy and how to proceed in a manageable way. I really think the tip to make some monochrome papers first and then revisit them after they’ve dried to add some embellishment.
I used wheat paste purchased from Talas. Super easy to mix up and doesn’t require cooking. I did strain it using a nut-milk bag.
