Hand-laid Recycled Paper

The Paper Plant makes utilitarian printmaking paper for small press publishing. The paper is half cotton, half high-quality scrap. Natural fibers such as yucca, flax and okra are pounded and used as strengthening additives. We ferment and grind recycled fabrics and also use decorative inclusions such as dried flower petals, threads and confetti.

After exploring papermaking around the world and seeing how our studio works, you will have at least 6 different pulps available for plain sheets or pulp painting. Production sessions may require trade or fee for supplies.

John Dancy-Jones, instructor, has been making paper since 1977. He publishes chapbooks, broadsides, and bookmark quotes as The Paper Plant, which operated as a bookstore, gallery and book arts center in downtown Raleigh, NC from 1982-1990. The Paper Plant won the Southern Book Awards prize for alternative publishing in 1987. John has taught workshops in schools and colleges, and at every age level, often assisting working artists in their exploration of papermaking.
