Join us outdoors at Audubon and learn how to make paper from plants. We will be working with fibers you can harvest from your garden, along with fibers from invasive species, paired with more traditional paper making fibers like abaca and cotton to make sheets of handmade paper.
We will start the afternoon with a walk to identify and collect suitable plant materials, then we will process the fibers and make lots of paper. We will press and stack our sheets ready for drying. Students will have the option to take their paper home damp and dry it themselves, or pick up their dry sheets at a later date.
Students should come suitably dressed and prepared to walk around the property, and to process the fibers, which can be both hard work, and get a little messy. Making sheets of paper can be wet work, you may want to bring rain boots or water shoes or other foot wear that can get wet, and a plastic apron.
This class is suitable for beginners.
The ticket price of $50 includes all the use of all tools, materials, and tuition, which will be split evenly between to benefit both Pearl City Clay House and Audubon Community Nature Center.
