As part of our Sustanability Series recycle scraps to make paper. You will learn the basics of papermaking you can do at home using an ordinary kitchen blender, frames, screen, colored paper, yarn scraps, iris or banana leaves, rose petals and even junkmail. You’ll learn to create paper pulp, make recycled paper, add inclusions like flowers, seeds and thread into your paper, shred yarn bits to add texture, how to laminate colors and shapes on your paper, and ways to dry your paper. The paper you'll make can be used for a variety of art and craft processes such as books, notecards and collage. Everyone will leave with 10-20 sheets of paper!
