From Plant to Paper, Paper To Book

Share this event:

Join paper artist Nicole Donnelly to explore plant-based papermaking and bookbinding, in collaboration with The Soapbox.  In this two-part workshop, we will learn the process of making paper by hand, starting by harvesting the plants.  On Friday, we will take a walking tour of our grounds to identify and  collect invasive plants for papermaking.  Bringing these back to the classroom, we will learn how the fibers are prepared and have some fun beating them into paper pulp. Well provide wine to enjoy while youre making the pulp.  Saturday, spend half the day forming sheets of handmade paper from our collected plants (this is a wet process!), and in the second half of the class, we will use premade sheets of plant paper to sew into handbound books.  All materials and tools provided.  Remember to pack a lunch for Saturday. Pre-registration required.

Schuylkill Center and Soapbox members: $65
