Papermaking with Plants Workshop :: Sat, July 22, 2023 :: 10-4pm
The plants are calling!
Do you feel called to work with plants in a creative hands-on way? Would you like to make your own drawing paper or journal with plant fibers that grow in your garden or along roadsides in your neighborhood? If you want to learn the ins and outs of transforming plants into paper, this workshop is for you.
This is a hands-on, knee deep adventure intended to get you thinking about how you can incorporate locally abundant resources into your creative practice. You will build the foundation of your making paper practice with raw plant material, from learning about the tools and equipment needed to potential plant allies for artistic endeavors.
We will do the work collectively. This workshop is a dive into each step of the plant based paper making process. You will be cutting, cooking, and rinsing fibers. You will see how the hollander beater turns these fibers into pulp and most exciting, you will pull a stack of your own paper to take home.
INVESTMENT: $115 includes all materials needed
Please note- if this workshop has your heart singing and you cannot afford to join me, be in touch for a scholarship, sliding scale or work trade option. There is a spot reserved in each workshop for reduced or waived fee.
