Paper making from Morocco

to your home.

Recently, I came across a wonderful blog 
Emily & Jon in Morocco and I would like to 
introduce the artists and their work.

Emily is a graduate of Cleveland Institute of Art 
with a major in fiber and material studies, and 
Jon is a graduate of Atlanta College of Art.

They created a wonderful five part tutorial on paper making.
I especially love the deckle and mold they made:
 It is functional, practical, efficient, and inexpensive!

Here are their wonderful posts:

52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textiles: Week 9

Vintage Velvet, Embroidery & Silkscreens This week's book See Us is about bringing to light that which has been in the dark.
See Us,  is also the title of the main poem in the book.  I silkscreened the poem on the textile page.  When the text was dry, I hand embroidered glass beads to the page.
To further the motif of "see us" I printed many of the images with a pale ink on the dark velvet.  This created haunting, ghost-like imagery. The finished book: The poetic interweaving of rare African textiles, modern fibers, original imagery, and poetry.
