Kaylee, Jane, and Pam meeting the Critter for the first time
These days a group of us meet each Sunday 12:30 PM and Tuesdays 10:30 AM for Open Studios at Khandroling Paper Cooperative located at 18 Schoolhouse Road, Conway MA in the basement of the old Conway grammar school now housing the Community of Tsegyalgar East, North American seat of Tibetan Teacher Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche.
Participants are introduced to all aspects of papermaking including cooking fibers, hand beating fibers (hence Kaylee's beating stick) beating rag and fibers in the Critter, and drying. We are also preparing our 2016 swatch samples due October 15.
Upcoming events include:
Kichung Lizee's Calligraphy workshop on October 23, 2016
Brenda Lilly's Mindfulness of Origami Club beginning November 10, 2016 5:00-6:30 PM
The Critter at work transforming Cotton rag, Abaca, and Kozo into high end pulp to make perfect paper.
