Papermaking: A Sustainable Practice, teaching

Papermaking: A Sustainable Practice

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 forming using both Eastern and Western traditional methods. 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. This course is taught by Prof. Velma Bolyard.
