Papermaking originated in ancient China; plant fibres were soaked, pressed and dried. Paying homage to this artisanal practise, this workshop shows you how to create your own sustainable stationary from locally-sourced waste.
All materials will be provided, but feel free to bring some flora from your garden to add to your creation. You'll take home a bespoke sheet of handmade paper the next day. The workshop will cover off pulp-making techniques, forming, couching and drying so that you have the knowledge to try it yourself at home.
Located within the Makers House (Level 4), this workshop is held in a uniquely circular space. The fit-out utilises materials repurposed from the Hanover House building. Accommodating all ages and abilities, this is a fantastic team-building opportunity for those working within retail and design or for anyone interested in creativity and craft.
