Paper making with Janet Taylor, stitch club 15th June 2013

Janet's paper making was great fun. There were about 10 of us in the big hall with a table each. We had our pre-prepared paper pulp which we watered down in our plastic vats and scooped up with our deckle and mortars and drained a bit before laying it down on j-cloths and soaking up excess with sponges. The paper and j cloths were put to dry but none of us managed to dry our papers before going home so we each took soggy piles to dry at home. Hopefully some of us will bring paper to display at the next meeting.
