Workshop: Paper Making with Plants and Flowers: A Beautiful Tradition
In this workshop, participants will explore all the creative possibilities of making recycled paper from cotton scraps, discuss the history of cotton as a heritage plant of Georgia and learn how to make sheets of recycled paper from sheet-forming and designing to pressing and drying. Participants will make their own paper creations using colored pulp, stencils, flowers and plants. Participants should wear clothes they don’t mind getting wet or bring an apron and are encouraged to bring things they may want to include in their paper such as pressed flowers, thread or confetti. This workshop is geared towards adults but is open to ages 10 and up accompanied by an adult. Limited to 20 participants.
