Participate in an intimate studio session with Hera Gallery member and artist, Barbara Pagh. You will be taught how to prepare sheets of handmade paper using Abaca, as well as how to add color and other materials to the pulp. All materials will be provided, you just need to bring your creativity and enthusiasm.
