Come learn how to create beautiful Decorative Papers. Go home with your own unique collection to use for book and art projects. Choose to make Paste Papers or Crayon Resist papers. We will begin looking at some sample sheets of papers I have made to use in my studio for my handmade books and boxes. I will show you various items that have used my unique Decorative Papers. In addition, I have a selection of books on Decorative and Paste Papers that you can browse to get some ideas for your papers. The flour and water paste will be ready for you to add a dollop of acrylic paint, which you can use to color your sheet of paper. Using a variety of tools and found objects, you will make various patterns in the paste paints. I will do a demonstration of the process. Feel free to ask as many questions as you wish. Then you will jump right in to make a minimum of four sheets of decorative papers, that you can use at home for a variety of projects ~ from collage, scrap booking, making cards, covering books & boxes, to using for wrapping paper. Please wear clothing you don't mind getting paint on or getting wet. We will be standing at a work table so wear comfy shoes that can get wet. I have some work aprons you can wear. This class runs for two hours. If you wish to stay longer, to make more papers, the hourly fee is $25/hour including materials for a maximum of 2 additional hours.
Welcome to Still Water Bindery. I apprenticed in bookbindery in London, UK 40 years ago, and have been making art ever since in my Newfane, Vermont art studio. I have taught classes from elementary school through graduate college level. I love to teach and share my passions. I am still exploring the magic of Paste Papers and will share my knowledge with you to make some fabulous papers for you to take home . . .

We will be working in and around my studio - Still Water Bindery - in the historic district of Newfane, Vermont. This is my professional studio where I repair books, and make custom books and boxes.
