Three Rivers Studio of Elsah Cort
Three Rivers, CA [near Sequoia National Park]
Taught by Three Rivers artist, Elsah Cort

This workshop will introduce you to making paper, using various materials including recycled paper, dried plant materials and scraps of this and that.  We will learn about the process of simple paper-making, producing paper that can be used for other art projects such as collage, or simply as an artwork itself.

Call 559-561-4671 for more information.
Registration forms can be found at the Arts Alliance website at
Limited enrollment space of 6 for this workshop, so sign up early. Registration fee: $75 for non Arts Alliance members; $45 for Arts Alliance members. Add $20 to registration fee after April 9, 2011.
Additional fee of $15 for materials, only if you wish materials to be supplied for you.

We will make our own moulds and deckles, the screened frames used to make paper. Using blenders, we will make our paper batches and learn how to include color and other materials to add texture and interest. It’s a slightly messy process, so wear comfortable work clothes. Bring a sack lunch. We will be working inside and outside, enjoying the springtime panorama.

Suggested materials to bring with you:

1. Wear old clothes or bring an apron.
2. Bring 2-4 old towels and a sponge.
3. Collect scraps of paper, junk mail, colored paper, pressed flowers, dried or fresh flowers, dried leaves, glitter, kitchen herbs, things to add to your paper pulp.
4. 2 old wooden picture frames or 2 canvas stretcher frames, both the same size, no larger than 8X10 (screening will be provided by me to make the paper frames, called mould and deckles).*
5. A cat litter box to be used for paper pulp batches. I have found these work well.*
6. Old cotton material (sheets, pillow cases work well) that will be torn into pieces the same size as your frames, or some felt to cut into the same sizes.
7. If you want to buy a professional mould and deckle or paper-making box, you can get kits from Arnold Gummer. They run between $40-75.* Required materials to bring with you.

* Required materials to bring with you. Additional fee of $15 for materials, only if you wish all materials to be supplied for you.
