Papermaking with Plants

  • Ottawa School of Art 35 George Street Ottawa, ON, K1N 8W5 Canada (map)

Recycle your garden waste into beautiful sheets of paper. You will learn how to identify fibres and pick suitable plants for turning into paper pulp. You will take home handouts on gathering and prepping fibres, and watch a demo on blending the pulp. The class will make papers using garden fibres the instructor has prepared in advance of the class, and take home 10 or more sheets of paper. Examples of fibres will depend on the harvest, but might be a batch of lily leaves, daffodil leaves, cattails, or something completely different!
