This 2-session Decorative Papers for Crafting & Bookmaking Workshop, taught by Book Arts Roadshow, focuses on providing basic information and hands-on instruction (via Zoom) on how to make selection a selection of decorative papers for crafting & bookmaking. This lively, stress-free Decorative Papers workshop is intended to provide Decorative Paper beginners with an opportunity to have fun, explore a new creative outlet, and to create decorative papers to use in future crafting and bookmaking projects.

On Day One of this workshop, we will explore these decorative paper techniques: Contemporary Paste Papers, Wax Resist and Botanical Printing.

On Day Two of this workshop, we will explore Dry Rubbings and Stenciling, and we will dive in to a little bookmaking to make a Decorative Papers Sampler Book to hold samples of your decorative papers and your notes on how you created each design.
