The Papermaking Studio's Newest Addition

With fresh inspiration from making paper in Fabriano, Italy, Gretchen, with the help of Franc, built our studio's newest addition: this wonderful curved Couching Stand!  

Couching [kooch-ing] (verb)
in Papermaking : to transfer (a sheet of pulp) from the mould to the felt on the post or couching stand

in progress...

Ta-da! Displayed in its new home,
proudly awaiting freshly pulled sheets of paper.
Marcella, our papermaking star intern,
happily puts the couching stand to good use.

Jackie, so happy she that she had to bust some moves.
Clearly the papermaking studio is the fun place to be!
And here's a sneak peak of the keepsake project!
Handmade abaca paper and screen printing. With 4,000
to make, the interns are getting into production mode...
