Maker/Artist in Residence: Flat Paper

When: Wednesday, August 12, 2015 - 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Where: Library21c -1175 Chapel Hills Drive at Make (Clean Maker Space)

Paper, The Old Fashioned Way

Do you know where the term Rag Picker originated? Were rag pickers important to the development of western papermaking? You bet they were! Rag pickers were the backbone of western papermaking! Papermaking arrived in Europe in 1290 ce, almost 1500 years after its invention in China. Europeans did not use raw plant fibers to make paper, they used cotton and linen from cast off clothes. Rag pickers bought cast-off clothing then resold it to the papermill. At the papermill rag pickers would sort and grade the clothing by color and quality, remove buttons and hooks, wash the rags then cut them into strips, roll them into a ball to ferment for several weeks before being beaten with a wooden mallet to tear apart the fibers. Rag pickers were, in fact, master recyclers!

We won’t go through the rag pickers’ processes but we will make paper using cotton, 100% post consumer cotton, the leftovers from tee shirt manufacturing. The paper we make will not be much different than the paper made in 1290! You’ll be able to use your handmade cotton paper for writing, drawing, bookmaking, mixed media work and more!
Registration is required. Supplies will be provided. Patron must be at least 16 years of age to attend.
