Since 1557, the Canson paper mill in Annonay, France has produced the finest art papers available. The Canson tradition was started by the Montgolfier family (best known for the adaptation of their paper to the 1783 invention of the first hot air balloon) and carried on by the Canson family.
Though industrialization has modernized the way certain papers are produced, much of the process and many of the features remain the same today. Pure French stream water, natural fibers and five centuries of experience contribute to the manufacture of the highest quality papers in the world.
Scott Bates will be here to show off and demonstrate Canson Watercolor Papers.
