Years teaching hand papermaking: null
Annual gathering of Western Papermakers from a Yahoo Group has influenced both my papermaking and what I do with the end products immensely. They were the first to teach me how to make paper from plant fibers, not just using them as inclusions. Facebook handpapermaking group has also provided inspiration. Both provide resources for questions, since before them, I pretty much worked in a vaccuum.
