Did you know that paper ain’t just made from trees? You can use all sorts of scrap materials to create gorgeous handmade sheets of paper. We encourage you to reuse, reinvent and recycle and turn your paper scraps, veggie waste and garden cuts into one of a kind paper in this hands-on paper making workshop.

Learn the ancient art of papermaking from start to finish!  From basic pulp papermaking techniques to pulp production, forming, couching and drying, you will make beautiful finished handmade paper you can take home.

 

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • All materials supplied to make your own paper!

  • Notes and paper making recipes to continue your learning.


What to bring

  • Feel free to bring along a selection of flora from your garden to add to your paper.

  • This is a very wet activity, make sure you come in comfortable clothing.
