Have you ever wondered about making paper?
How do you turn plants into paper?
Want to find out how to make, emboss and decorate your own unique paper?
Explore the foundations of paper making using recycled paper and plant fibre to create your unique sheets of beautiful paper.
During this workshop you will be guided step by step through the paper making process from the choice of materials and preparation of the pulp to formation of the sheets.
On day one, learn the basics of how to create your own unique sheets of paper using recycled paper. We will start by preparing the pulp and learning how to set up a vat ready to start pulling sheets. This will be followed by step-by-step guidance on how to form your own paper. Try laminating sheets, putting inclusions in a sheet, adding coloured patterns, and embossing your paper.
On day two, we will work with plant fibres, starting with the plant and progressing through to producing your own original paper. Everyone will have the opportunity to observe and participate in each activity through the process from preparing the fibres, cooking them up, pulping and then forming paper.
