Paste papers (and cards, bags and tags)

Getting ready for gift giving….Larry Thompson will lead a play session using a paste paper process for decorating paper.  The Book Arts Lab will provide everything, including large sheets of paper (wrapping paper), small card stock (greeting cards), book board for making “combs”. BUT if you have stuff lying around: butcher paper, paper bags, envelopes and cards to decorate, or tools with tinges and texture, bring them to share.
