Learn the papermaking process from the plant stage to finished paper. Working with Vineyard plants from gardens and fields, you will prepare fibers from any of the following: daffodil, iris or lily leaves; pampas grass; or cornhusk. You will work through all steps—cooking, rinsing, and beating fibers into pulp—and, finally, pulling sheets of paper.
