An Introduction to textured paper making with Textile and Mixed Media Artist: Jacqui Smithson

Thursday 13th June


In this half-day  workshop you will learn how to recycle waste paper into pulp ready to create new paper through hands-on, practical paper making.

Using the gardens on site as your inspiration you may like to add seeds, petals, and other interesting finds to your pulp, making each handmade paper sample completely unique in colour and texture.

Once dried, your new paper could be used in projects such as card making, scrapbooking or even sweet miniature pieces of art.

You will go home with a newly found skill and an abundance of beautiful paper samples.


Materials and equipment are provided for this class. 

Please bring an apron, an old towel, a small stack of magazines/newspapers and a plastic bag to take your samples home. 

10am-1pm, £45pp


This ticket includes a FREE Cream Tea in the Lord Leycester Cafe.


(Please note this event will take place in our Guildhall, which is up a flight of stairs.  Please let us know if you will need to use the lift alternatively)
