Apprenticeship in Traditional Eastern and
    Western Hand Papermaking
University of Iowa Center for the Book

The UICB Apprenticeship in Papermaking (originally conceived by Lynn
Amlie) consists of a 2-year, 1/2 time position available to
individuals who have previously demonstrated a strong interest in
and commitment to traditional papermaking history and technique. The
apprenticeship pays $8/hour the first year and $10/hour the second
year.  During the two years, the apprentice is exposed to all
aspects of our Eastern and Western paper production including, fiber
cultivation (kozo only), fiber selection, fermentation, cooking,
beating, washing during beating, sheetforming, drying, sizing, paper
grading and related equipment maintenance and use.  Ongoing research
efforts are also components in the apprenticeship.  The apprentice
will work directly with Tim Barrett and first year apprentice
Marianne Kelsey.
