Paper boats and Amanda Degener workshop

The three boats I posted off to be part of Joanne B Kaar's project in Scotland. There's a mix of plant fibre papers, marbelling and dyed paper both with natural dyes and with synthetic.

My sample book from Amanda's workshop

Sample on the left is stencilled with indigo or walnut mixed with wallpaper paste, the one on the right is pigmented paper dyed with walnut on belgain flax paper.

Gail you were right about Amandas workshop, I loved it but most of all I loved her, such a fun and generous spirit.
It was a wonderful class.

Hi Gail - Great to see your boats! Some friends are getting together in a couple of weeks to make some boats from Singapore! Love the paper you made with Amanda.
