Pulp Painting – A Paper Making Workshop!

Join teaching artist Shawna Moulton to learn how to make your own paper using colored fibers that can create a design within the paper itself! The handmade papers can be used for future art projects, writing, envelopes, journals, or simply framed as a piece of art.
The Pulp Painting Workshop is fun, easy, educational, and a creative outlet! This session is perfect for beginners, and seasoned paper makers might find some new techniques.
