Parchment Making Demonstration
If you ever get the chance to learn about parchment form Jesse or Stephen Meyer of Pergamena, take it! These brothers are a wealth of knowledge, super helpful and having been to Pennsic (you may have seen them kitty-corner to Historical Glassworks one year) very interested in supporting our community. They are usually my first stop for parchment and leather for fine projects. And Stephen nearly always answers the phone when I call. 🙂
UPenn hosted a demonstration of parchment making with Stephen kindly came and taught. His elder brother Jesse was off doing primary research into old-world techniques still practiced by artisans around the globe.
Take a look at the album.
