1 Day Workshop

Friday, June 14 | 6-9 p.m.

In this class students will learn how to create paper pulp from recycled materials. Which will be used to create handmade paper. The main project of this class will be the students making mini pieces of paper that will be embedded with seeds. While making the paper students will be led to think about what intentions they have for themselves these next couple of months and how they might reach these goals. At the end of the class students will have about 10 pieces of paper with seeds that are ready to be planted as a visual reminder of one's own growth. Come be creative and reflective in a welcoming and expressive space.
