Paper Making

Sally Garrett

Making handmade paper can be a satisfying process as you discover the variety of materials that can create unique papers and effects. We will produce different textures using recycled materials such as plants, banana skins and nettles. Cotton linters will also be used to create pulp for laying out and making paper.

At the end of the day there will be time to learn potato printing on cartridge paper to create samples.

Suitable for all levels including beginners.

This day will be fun and messy so please bring apron and any material you may wish to add to your pulp. Your newly made papers will not be dry on the day so bring a folder or bag to carry them home.

Most paper making equipment and materials will be supplied. Students will need to bring the following:

  • Any small plant materials i.e. leaves, petals, lavender.
  • Apron and old towel
  • Bowl for mixing pulp
  • Bags or folders to carry paper home flat

As a visual artist Sally Garrett is interested in the relationship between materials and assemblage. Her background in textiles weaves through her work like threads of time. From designing and selling kimono to London’s Notting Hill in early 2000 to further study with University of Brighton graduating with 3D Mdes in Design and Craft in 2017, Sally enjoys working with sculptural forms. These works were exhibited at Rambert Dance London and Kellie Miller Arts Brighton. Exhibiting and selling in UK and internationally since 2000, painting, drawing and sketchbooks have underpinned her work throughout.
