Paper making

Yesterday I attended a fun and informative paper making demo at the Westport Art Group. The instructor was Wayne Fuerst who is not only a paper maker, but a cool potter as well. The pic of one of his beautiful papers!!
I've been making some of my papers for my Torn Paper Paintings...and I learned a number of new and cool interesting tips and tricks to play with. This was a great two hour program. Thanks Wayne for sharing your insight.

I don't think that there's anything more beautiful than a piece of handmade paper. The textures and colors make me swoon. Bet you had a ball!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Thanks gals.
Yes...it's a bit of a messy process but quite a bit of fun. I enjoy working on it more in the warmer weather when I can do it out at the potting table. I have a nice set-up out there and it keeps the mess out of the house.
If you get a chance to try it...do. It's a fun experience.
