All Hands in the Pulp
Kids, make your own sheets of paper this summer at a papermaking studio. Get your hands wet with pulp as you pull your own sheets of paper in different colors, shapes, and sizes! Experiment with a turkey baster, squeeze bottle, cookie cutter, or yarn to make pulp designs and decorate your paper. This workshop introduces you to the world of papermaking and various techniques used by papermakers. When your paper dries, you can use it for writing letters, drawing pictures, making books, or something else. What will you do with yours?
