[BKARTS] Apprenticeship in Traditional Eastern & Western Hand Papermaking, University of Iowa

Apprenticeship in Traditional Eastern & Western Hand Papermaking

The UICB Apprenticeship in Papermaking (originally conceived by Lynn Amlie)
consists of a 2-year, 1/2 time position available to individuals who have
previously demonstrated a strong interest in and commitment to traditional
papermaking history and technique.  The apprenticeship pays $8/hour the
first year and $10/hour the second year.  During the two years, the
apprentice is exposed to all aspects of our Eastern and Western paper
production including, fiber cultivation (kozo only), fiber selection,
fermentation, cooking, beating, washing during beating, sheetforming,
drying, sizing, paper grading and related equipment maintenance and
use.  Ongoing research efforts are also components in the
apprenticeship.  The apprentice will work directly with Tim Barrett and
first year apprentice Marianne Kelsey.
