Join book artist and papermaker Mandy Brannan to discover the creative possibilities of combining two papermaking techniques; traditional style Japanese papermaking and recycled papermaking. The masterclass will begin with hand-beating kozo fibres, which add both strength and delicacy to the work. The following stage will be working with recycled pulps with found papers. Create experimental paper sheets by combining both kozo fibres and recycled pulp.

Mandy says she loves “the endless possibilities of using natural fibres that can be hand beaten, chopped, pigmented, manipulated and pushed 95% of the time – 5% of the time they do their own thing – that’s the nature of natural fibres! The pleasure resulting from making paper by hand can evoke a satisfactory sense of personal accomplishment, one that can satisfy a creative need that comes from working with a medium that can entrance and continue to be open to new experimentation, even after 25 years of making.

If you cannot book onto this Masterclass, take a look at the corresponding Big Make workshop in the afternoon which is drop in on the day.
