Here are some photos from the paper making workshop several weeks ago, as well as from the book binding and letterpress workshops that are ongoing... I had to get people to remind me to take photos!
Next week we start sewing our text blocks together in the book binding workshop and on Tuesday everyone (fingers crossed) in the ABCs of Letterpress class will be printing their one colour broadside on the Vandercook SP15 and learning how that press works.

|Dan peeling his sheets off the felts after pressing. He pulled such nice thin white sheets of |
paper that he found using some newsprint pressed onto the damp sheet was helpful in pulling it off the felts for drying.
