Chapter 4. Paper Making

By François Vigneault

Paper, first invented in China around the first or second century AD, is now so ubiquitous that it has achieved near-invisibility in our modern world. The average American household receives more than 100 pounds of unwanted junk mail each year! However, creating a handmade sheet of paper can remind anyone of this everyday object’s noble origins.

Here’s a chance to give your unwanted papers a second life for stationery, collage, or anything else you can imagine. Rediscover this ancient and oh-so-easy art form.
