Fiber Arts: Paper Making Demos and Activities

Program description

Paper making starts with a fiber pulp plus natural materials such as grasses, seeds, petals or feathers. The program covers making pulp, screening sheets of paper and embellishing with color and textures into a group collage. Finished collages can be displayed as a group piece or cut into individual bookmarks. Optional workshop provides screens and pulp for each individual to make his own paper collage, photo mats or stationery. Language and complexity of project or demo varies with age group and the available time allotment. This can be a very short demo or an extended hands on project with individual students.
