paper from place

deckle edges
making paper
from the land,
at long ridge farm,
is coming up
august 3,4, & 5
and nancy tells me there's room
for more students.
i'm excited about making paper
from the land 
here
and making a book or two
to see how beautiful plant papers
show themselves off.
tiny moulds
you'll go home
with a stack of paper,
a book or two,
and the knowledge
to make paper by yourself.
a whole bag of tricks.
tall stack of papers
join us at one of the 
most beautiful spots in new hampshire
(yes, really),
i'm beginning to put the mill in order
to travel in the outback
across champ's pond, then
to brattleboro, 
then new hampshire and long ridge farm.
where nancy is playing 
with sheep and color.
and soon,
pulp!
brand new sheet

If I could I would. it just looks spectacular. I'll be up in Western Massachusetts for two weeks starting August 9th, but no workshops.

I wish I could be there, the workshop seems fascinating.
Beautiful pictures of the paper.
