Turn your waste paper into beautiful recycled handmade paper!



40 mins Class size 4 to 30     label $40 - $85 ($40 for Class only, no box, $85 for Class and box)


This is a ClassBento virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Our Live/Box classes have been featured on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Vogue, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft kit containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and it should arrive within 2-5 business days. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

Learn how to make recycled paper from paper waste! It's a great way to reuse paper such as junk mail, which would otherwise end up thrown away.

In the live streaming class, which is perfect for beginners, your instructor will demonstrate how to make paper pulp and how to form, couch and dry your sheets of paper. We will discuss decorating your paper in a variety of ways including adding decorations such as flower petals, herbs and seeds directly into your paper. You will also be shown how to colour your paper naturally with plant dyes.

Paper making can be messy, so please wear old clothes you don't mind getting dirty or an apron. At the end of the online class, you will have beautiful recycled paper and the skills to continue this practice and eliminate your waste at home.

Please note:

  • If you are purchasing a 'Class and Box' ticket you will need to allow seven business days for your craft box to arrive in time for the class.
  • This is an interactive class, so we encourage students where possible to turn on their video and microphone to gain the most benefits from the class.

Nichola gave really clear instructions and lots of great explanations and gave hints and inspiring ideas to take the basics learnt to more advanced options. Loved the class - she is a lovely knowledgeable teacher.

I had a great time learning how to make paper over Zoom with Nichola. I suggest prepping your workspace with towels in advance so you can dive in to the making, and know that your hands will get wet and a bit messy so make sure your computer/device isn't too close to you. Nichola showed us how to use the things in our kit but also gave some beginner-friendly ideas for how to incorporate other dyes and add-ins to the paper. I used my kitchen blender but I enjoyed this so much and can see recycling paper becoming a regular activity, so I am planning to buy a blender just for paper-making.
