Papermaking with a Bali Artist

Last weekend I had the privilege of working with Naruse, a Bali paper artist who is visiting as a part of the Papermakers of Queensland Berbagi exhibition.

We spent a very hot day at Noosa working with botanical fibres to create some interesting works, using the pour technique.

It was nice to play with water on such a hot day!
