Dion's vacuum table allows the creation of very large sheets of paper, measuring approx 2m x 1m. Everyone got to make one of these large sheets which gave us lots of practice! We also kept ourselves busy with other activities such as cooking, beating, and couching sheets of paper from Dion's fibre supply of mulberry bark fibre and cotton linters. We also used own fibre including banana and a weed from Helga's property.
Thank you to Dion and his partner Sue for their generousity and hospitality as nine keen papermakers invaded their property.
Photos from the weekend have been posted onto the website http://www.papermakersqld.org.au/.
