Hands in the Slurry

Well believe it or not, I rarely get a chance to actually pull sheets, make artwork or do anything with paper except count it, wrap it and ship it. But just last month I had a full day finally using that other side of my brain.IMG_3132

Yes!  A whole day of paper making with Michelle Samour at the Museum School, Boston, MA.

It was a pleasure and a joy and I learned so many PAPER MAKING-IN-STUDIO tips.
