At the Durango Arts Center, participants had fun creating paper made from a variety of fibers such as cattail, bamboo, wild iris, etc.  We also used kozo given to us by Tim Barrett of the University of Iowa who recently did presentations about Japanese papermaking at the Center.  We cooked and beat the fibers, dipped screens into the resulting pulp, and dried our creations in the sun.   A beautiful variety of papers...textured and smooth, embossed and layered, some with inclusions of flower petals and other interesting additions were the products of this one-day workshop.
