On Thursday a group of members gathered at the studio and what a fun day we had.
Rhonda was having her first papermaking lesson with Jill, learning all the tricks to making paper using recycled white paper and then some plant fibre pulp.
I think it’s the second time she’s been in the studio and she made some lovely paper and then started another project – see the photo.
We did warn her about the dangers of dipping her fingers in a vat full of pulp but unfortunately I think she’s caught the bug and is now hooked – we’ll see more of Rhonda around the studio!
Dinah was working on a piece to send in to the Hearts for Parkinsons exhibition.
A few members dropped in their work for the Mezzanine display.
At the end of the day Jill set up the display and what a great exhibition it is – a wonderful display of various ways that members use paper – handmade, commercial and a mixture of both.
It is well worth a visit.
This is just a snippet of what we currently have on show at Primrose Park.
