Jill has been making paper for more than 20 years.  She has exhibited at galleries in Australia and Japan including the Palm House Gallery in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and Mosman Art Gallery.

These workshops are extremely popular and the children always go home with the thrill of having made their own paper from start to finish.  They enjoy making the pulp,  forming the sheets, texturing and adding inclusions to form their own unique pieces.  It’s a great day and we look forward to helping them learn the basics of this art.
