workshops & demonstrations

I offer a range of workshops either in my studio or at other venues, suitable for all ages and abilities, from the beginner to the more experienced. I can introduce you to a wide range of techniques: making colourful recycled papers; experimenting with plant papers; paper pulp collage; dipped woven structures; handmade paper books; incorporating textiles with papermaking. 

 

Group workshops

If you would like to book a day workshop for a group I am happy to travel to a suitable venue bringing all my equipment and materials with me. I will tailor the workshop to meet your interests and needs.

 

Private workshops

I can provide private workshops in my studio for up to 4 participants for either a half or full day. I also offer one to one sessions which are particularly helpful as an introduction to papermaking or for more specialist techniques. 

 

Specialist groups 

I offer workshops to specialist groups of people with disabilities and special needs tailoring the session to meet the abilities of the participants. Papermaking is very satisfying and therapeutic: the feel of the warm water, stirring the pulp, working with the sponge, using different textured decorations and a quick and satisfying result.

I have worked with visually impaired young people, children with behavioral difficulties and adults with mental health issues and varying physical disabilities.

 

1st wedding anniversay workshops

The gift for 1st wedding anniversay is paper! So why not book a papermaking workshop maybe as a surprise for your other half? A full day or half day session with a glass of fizz will make an experience to remember!

 

Scout & guide organistions 

I can travel to your meeting venue bringing all equipment to provide a fun papermaking session.This is suitable for all ages and abilities and enables the children/young people to learn a new skill and handicraft perhaps towards a badge.


Demonstrations

I am available to give talks and demonstrations on papermaking to organisations such as WI and church groups.
