Papermaking & Card Printing Events

November 20, 2023

Join Wells Book Arts for two hands-on celebrations on making.

Thursday, Nov. 30, 3 – 5pm: PAPERMAKING

Students in Paper Formation + Form invite you to make paper. Join us in the Campbell Building, Middle Studio. We’ll teach you to make a sheet of handmade paper. You can then decorate your sheet with pigmented pulp and a selection of stencils with Wells and winter themes. (We’ll dry papers in the studio and you can return to pick up your paper in a couple of days.)

Saturday, Dec. 2, 12 – 2pm: CARD PRINTING

Letterpress print cards from several pre-set designs celebrating winter and the holiday season. Additional cards and prints will be available for sale, and a pop-up exhibit of student book arts class work on view.
