Beginners Papermaking Collection

Beginners Papermaking Collection

It's finally here.

A project I have been working on for quite some time. Over the years I have had many inquiries about how to start a personal papermaking practice. A pretty daunting task to explain through emails and direct messages on instagram... BUT, no more! I have finally twisted my talented boyfriend's arm into making a few gorgeous handcrafted mould and deckles (the most important papermaking tools; and super hard to find), and then I sat down and poured all of my secrets into an exclusive beginners papermaking tutorial. I have basically distilled the past six years of my own papermaking explorations and process down to a few simple tools, and a pretty thorough tutorial to get you started with your own practice. Avoid the awkward stage of crappy DIY tools and studio set up, and just let me tell you what to do. From there, you can make your own creative choices and a unique batch of paper, all your own. A damn good deal, if you ask me. 

This collection will basically get your hands wet, so to speak, and set you off in the right direction in the world of papermaking (and definitely in style).

With this collection, you will receive:

-  11 x 14'' Handcrafted Mould and Deckle

- 1 lb of Cooked Thai Kozo (approximately 24 finished sheets_

- Beech Mallet

- Medium Size Vat 

- 10 Heavyweight Polyester Felts

- 5ml Bottle of Formation Aid Powder

- 10ml Bottle of Sizing

- A SECRET PASSWORD to access exclusive tutorial materials on my website

 

A little bit about the handcrafted mould and deckle: We designed this first version to be a luxurious beginners mould. Unlike most student moulds, which are flush mount, the deckle (top frame) fits nicely over the mould (screen portion) for a comfortable, slip free fit while sheet forming. The beautiful painted plywood construction is strengthened and completely waterproofed with a thick coating of epoxy, and buffed to a gorgeous sheen. A simple, yet stylish papermakers tool. 

I will go into further detail about the contents of this kit in the password protected tutorial that will get you started on your papermaking journey. To give you an extra head start, I've included a WHOLE POUND of Thai Kozo, already pre-cooked and washed by me! A helluva time saver for you. I'll even talk you through a few different ways to add interesting inclusions or color to the fibers for a truly unique batch of paper. Plus, I'll outline the cooking process, so that you can do it yourself in the future. 

This kit is MADE TO ORDER. Please allow 4-6 weeks for production, though we try to get them out as quickly as possible. I'll send over the secret password after purchase, in case you want to get a head start on learning. 

I am seriously so excited to share this with you. Thank you endlessly for your interest.
