Rag Paper at MCBA

This window full of colorful sheets of paper is from my Rag Paper class at MCBA. We used blue jeans, white and orange t-shirts, pink linen, and a jute coffee bag. Students brought a playful and experimental attitude to class.

This detail shows a sheet of paper made from the pink linen with some of the coffee bag fibers mixed in for texture. These sheets dried on the window will have one very smooth side. We also used several other drying methods producing different textures: restraint, spur, and air drying. I look forward to teaching this class again next year!
