Autumn Plant Fibers
|Tuesday September 26, 2023||Autumn Plant Fibers||9:30-12:30|
We will celebrate the arrival of autumn by preparing locally grown fibers for papermaking. Local fibers which include bast, leaf, and grass fiber plants will be prepared, cooked, and beaten for sheet forming. These plants may include cattail, gladiola, cornhusk, phragmites, and ornamental grasses. This is an opportunity to experiment. You will learn to pull sheets of paper and explore interesting fiber combinations.
