$214 including GST & materials
This four-day course teaches how to make paper starting with plants and
weeds from your garden as well as from prepared dry fibre, and includes a

prepared pulp, it gives you the satisfaction of saying you did it all

Introductory Western Papermaking - Full day, Saturday July 12th, 9:00am -

This course provides an introduction to western style papermaking. Starting
with commercially available dry pulp sheets, you will learn how to form your

Other topics include the effect of additional beating, formation aids,
sizing, pigments, retention agents, and decorative additives.

Introductory Western Marbling - Full day, Saturday July 19th, 9:00am -
$65 including GST & materials
This course covers western-style marbling on paper. You will be taught basic
techniques using acrylic paints on methocel, along with over twenty classic
patterns of western marbling, plus several special methods for further
enhancing your designs. Other materials and media will also be discussed.

All classes will be held at our store at 135 Lexington Court, Unit 4,
Waterloo, Ontario (about 2 hours west of Buffalo NY). All class fees are in
Canadian dollars; with the current exchange rate, the US$ prices would be
about 3/4 of the Canadian prices.
