In this workshop, we will bring our creativity to local watershed stewardship by making beautiful handcrafted paper from the fibrous biomas of invasive plant species removed from local watersheds. The process will include mixing, blending of plant fibers and straining and drying the pulp sheets. Each student will get to make 6 screens, and has the option to combine this workshop with our Native Flora and Fauna Printmaking Workshop the following week.
Both workshops will be held in our cozy upstairs workshop in the Spaulding building. Plan to provide your own lunch. Snacks and Warm Beverages will be provided.
