Handmade paper has a unique texture and an individual quality that makes it not only a surface to write or print on- but also an object of beauty. With a small investment in equipment (or the supplies to make it from scratch)- a small harvest of backyard weeds or garden plants- and the guidance of paper making expert Helen Hiebert- anyone can make exquisite papers right in the home kitchen. Hieberts basic paper making techniques- laid out in illustrated step-by-step instructions- make it easy to blend and shape a variety of organic papers from such common plants as hosta- milkweed- and thistledown- as well as the more unusual pineapple- yucca- and seaweed. She describes how to collect- harvest- and process the plant fibres and then create sheets using both Western and Japanese techniques. Inspired by the community of paper making artists she is a part of- Hiebert features profiles of paper makers from around the world- highlighting their individual tips and techniques. She also includes project instructions for using handmade paper to create one-of-a-kind cards and envelopes- multi panelled lampshades- and accordion fold books.There are also instructions for embellishing techniques such as adding flower petals- creating collages- and dyeing with richly coloured walnut shells. From plant to finished paper- the simple completeness and beauty of Papermaking with Garden Plants & Common Weeds will appeal to crafts people- gardeners- environmentalists- teachers- and anyone who enjoys creating from nature....
