Local residents of Tsegyalgar East are invited to visit our papermaking demonstration at the first Shelburne Falls, MA Riverwalk taking place 2:00 PM-6:00 PM on Saturday, June 18, 2016. In a addition to the demo we will be displaying our first editions of woodblock printed cards made on our Kelton etching press. Members of the cooperative over the winter created a number of carved woodblocks related to traditional Tibetan motifs and symbols to print on our own paper which we will offer to the public for a donation.
We also will offer some of our handmade boxes with lotus crystals as a prelude to our Lotus Blossom Project.
The painted cards are made by Ingmar Pema Dechen from Mississippi who generously offered them to us. We will also have some flower seed paper and other paper products at our booth.
