Heather the Papermaker

Over the past few days, Heather Millet ’10 has been busy at work making paper for an upcoming printing project.   She’s been been making dark (really, it’s close to black) pulp from t-shirts, jeans, and other cotton clothing by running it through the Hollander beater in the papermaking studio.  The next step will be to make sheets from the pulp, but not until later in the week at the earliest as the cloth is proving a little resistant.
