This video shows students at University of Iowa’s Center for the Book learning how to make paper by hand.


The next video, showing Hayle Mill’s process is fascinating, giving a good approximation one assumes, of the industrial process of paper making as it was for hundreds of years before mechanization. But you’ll have to go to YouTube to see it though. Just click on the YouTube logo at the bottom right hand corner. Unfortunately Hayle Mill closed in 1987, though Simon Greene does have a website on which he offers some papers, moulds etc. for sale.


(This thorough and useful reference site from University of Iowa’s Timothy Barrett, is recommended to those who want to know more.)
