Jazmine Catasus invites participants to discover paper making with materials and equipment that can be found in most households or hardware stores. During this one and a half hour demonstration, Jazmine will demonstrate how to prepare an at home studio space for basic paper making, without the need for expensive and specialized equipment. Along with set up, the focus of this online workshop will be on building a mould and deckle, make pulp from recycled materials, and to pull and press handmade sheets.
