What's Included

I’ve taught papermaking workshops in schools and classrooms, adapting the content to suit all age groups and abilities. Making handmade paper is a traditional craft that goes back to the invention of paper in China at the start of the 2nd century. It is a technique that is quick to grasp and is easy for children to accomplish and get instant satisfying results. Ready to get your hands pulpy? In this 2 hour introduction to papermaking, kids will learn the basics of making recycled handmade paper made from 100% post-consumer waste paper. We will supply lots of pulp, coloring, and other fun embellishments (glitter, seeds, confetti, etc.) so kids can create their own custom paper. They will learn how to form sheets of paper in different sizes and weights. When they’re finished we will press it and have it ready to dry at home. The unique handmade papers are great for cards, stamping, drawing, or framing on their own. What will you make?
