"Paper Obsession" Adult Ed Class in Portland, Maine

The course description for this one day, five hour paperfest:
"Does your heart flutter at the sight of fancy, luscious papers in paper boutiques and craft stores? Learn about decorative papers’ uses and creation with Papercraft Priestess, Bridget Matros. Then make your own! Soft handmade papers, marbled sheets, textured paste paper... no creative superpowers or artistic experience necessary - just a passion for paper (and the willingness to get a little messy)!"

Which papers work best for Suminagashi?
I had a great posse, making it well worth the drive, hours of prep, and the Epic Haul of supplies! We had a blast!

Japanese Paper Marbling... trying out some colored inks!
Comparing finished marbled sheets.

Roll up your sleeves and plug in the blender for papermaking!
Drying innovations:
ShamWOW and a "no-shine" ironing screen 
Some brought their own add-ins, like FEATHERS!
