About the workshop

Date & Time

I have booked Berrington in Jamieson for another weekend workshop/ sharing event to be held in May this year. The accommodation would sleep up to 11 singles or 14 including partners. It comprises a three bedroom house plus two two bedroom units in a garden setting. Marianne Little has kindly donated a large supply of pineapple fibre from the Philippines so Barb and I will cook that up for us to use at the weekend. Many years ago we had a five day workshop with Asao Shimura where the culmination was dinner cooked in pineapple paper. It was written up in a deckle edge and on our website at the time. Luckily the National library saved it on Trove and you can still read about it here.

The units all include double rooms so if any partners wish to come and enjoy the surrounding bushland they would be most welcome and should pay the member rate. You can see what Jamieson has to offer here

Friday evening meal will be held in Jamieson for those who arrive by 7.30pm. You should bring your own breakfast and lunch and something small for sharing on the Saturday night. There is a café if you prefer to eat breakfast or lunch out. You may also like to bring along some snacks to share.

Some ideas are paper making, sculpture, basket making, paper thread, printing, book binding etc. As for a theme it could be vessels, contained or garden. It is still very much in the planning stages but I am informing you now so that you can add it to your calendars. We last did this in 2017 with 9 participants and at that time each participant provided an activity that was a mix of indoor and outdoor activities. This time I would like people to work in pairs.

Here is a review of the last weekend and you can read about it here.

What a delightful time nine papermakers had in November in a perfect setting with beautiful gardens, splendid trees, riverside walks and lots of birds.

Each person led us in an activity or showed us some cunning tricks to use when putting a piece or book together. There were ways to mark or colour your pages, several easy folded books, how to use a burning tool and some papermaking from recycled jeans. All this was put into a folder constructed from our blue and gold paper.

Thanks to Gail and all for sharing your talents and for a fabulous weekend.
