Four calligraphers got together to make paper–three for the first time.  We used embroidery hoop molds, as well as small and large rectangular molds.  We each brought our own pulp and shared and combined.  The brown you see in the pictures is exotic wood shavings (Wenge etc.) with kraft paper. The maroon was a surprise: brown packaging paper, construction paper, colored streamers and white copy paper.  The white was from paper made from kozo and banana, and scraps of calligraphy quality paper.  Diane Flack does bookbinding, so she brought ribbon to put in the middle between two pieces of paper–the end result is something that can be folded and tied like a book cover.  Great fun as well as a lot of paper made by Diane, Kay Hilt, Rachel Bancroft and Marianne Nelson.
