My journey began in 2007 when I started using a paper making kit that we found in the back of the closet.
Since then I hurry for slurry and love the process of putting my fingers into the vat to create something different each and every time.
I make paper using a traditional 3-person team. First I sort previously used office paper, tissue paper, or construction paper by colour. Then I shred the paper if needed.
When I make paper I choose 2 or 3 main colours as the base.
I also choose contrast colours. The shredded paper is placed in a blender with water to make slurry. Nothing else is added. I pour the slurry into pails and then mix it with water in the vat.
I am the "vat person" and make up to 36 sheets with the assistance of a "coucher" and "stacker."
