HANDMADE PAPER & JOURNALS
The students start by shredding and blending discarded papers in a blender then run them through a screen
and place the pressed paper on a drying rack overnight.
When they finish successfully making a wide range of different kinds of papers they must select a type of paper they prefer and create a hand bound journal for it. Each journal needs to be decorated inside and out, have a focal point on the cover and at least three embellishments. We then bore holes to bind them with ribbon, leather or whatever suits their theme.
