In this workshop the students will learn about the art of watermarks and how to make them. Using buttercut, they will create a design of their choice to make a watermark with and pull sheets of paper with said watermark. In the end, the students will leave with a reusable watermark and their own handmade watermarked paper.
Prerequisite: Papermaking experience is suggested, though not required.
