This workshop is a learning experience and a creative one for people who like to experiment in a state of calm and sense of well being. Workshop objectives include instructing participants on how to make paper at home using garden plants and producing a collection of handmade papers which participants will keep. All materials and equipment will be supplied during the workshop and certificates will be presented to participants upon completion.
Auroville Papers has been producing beautiful hand-made paper in Auroville since 1998. Over the years we have explored and experimented with many paper making techniques. Apart from the classic stationery items, we make decorative and useful household products, jewellery and unique works of art from paper and paper- mache.
The participants should be aware that the making of paper is a bit akin to cooking. Please dress accordingly, with clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or dirty. Please note that the drying of paper can take from 2 to 3 days, so the participants will have to come back later to collect their finished work or make arrangements with our office to have it shipped to them.
