This is a fantastic class, You learn a lot and participate at your own rate. I chose to branch off along the way - working with other natural fibers whilst still embracing and learning the things required in the structure of the class. The shared discussions were very informative and I learnt from them as well. Thank you Amy for such a comprehensive and well planned class.

Amy Richard has laid out the start to finish of Eastern Papermaking with a mix of slide shows and short videos. These combined with weekly Zoom discussions create a path to successful results. The class is a month long so it can easily fit into a busy schedule. Meeting fellow paper enthusiasts is a plus. I always learn as much from other peoples questions as my own and Amy was able to share her knowledge with great answers and follow ups. The length of the the class is a plus and the time consuming cleaning and beating of fibers could happen at ones own pace.

I was very happy that I could take part in Amy Richard´s Kozo Papermaking Class.
Yes, it is possible to learn making paper online thanks to her instructive step-by-step lessons with text, photos and videos. And you can make this workshop without buying a lot of expensive tools and equipment. Amy is a really good teacher and the workshop was just great! Recommended.

I very much enjoyed Amy Richard’s Kozo papermaking class. I started out with very little knowledge of kozo or Japanese papermaking and by the end of her course, had made paper from kozo starting from the bark. Her videos and instructions are very thorough and she is a wonderful and kind teacher. Highly recommend her class for anyone interested in learning about kozo fiber!

Amy's online papermaking workshop was a fantastic learning experience.
Her extensive documentation and no-fuss videos from her paper studio guided me on my own papermaking journey and gave me an inspiring insight into her arts practice.

Amy shared her creative process very generously and led the students to discuss questions during the class. After finishing the class, I got rich paper-making knowledge and interesting experience. Even if the course is online, it is still very understandable from Amy's tutorial videos!
