AAH-3060SUS Papermaking: A semester class learning to make paper from local plants gathered at the Sustainability Farm and donated cotton, linen, and hemp cloth from Zone 4’s growing stash. We’ll be working at the farm and at SLU’s Zone 4 Papermaking studio, St Lawrence University, Canton, NY.
Few of us think about this thing we use everyday: paper. This class will focus deeply on learning how to identify, evaluate, and harvest, plants appropriate to process into pulp and make paper. You'll be able to have an understanding of and ability to evaluate plants for paper making. We will make paper from indigenous local and cultivated plants and plant fibers from other sources, including, perhaps an old T shirt or your worn out cotton work clothes.
