Sustainable Papermaking

What are your lowest carbon footprint options for fiber? LOCAL plants!

paperTurning locally grown banana, kukui, wauke, cotton, dried flowers – even coffee beans – into paper is a whole lot of fun. And a wonderful way to recycle creatively. You can make cards, book marks, masks, dolls, sculptural reliefs and stretch your imagination at these fun workshops. Great for all ages.

Artist-in-Residence Susan O’Malley is our guest instructor and her own work includes locally sourced plant fibers and beautiful local plant dyes. Recently returned from a prestigious Artist-in- Residence at the Anderson Center in Minnesota, we’ll also have a chance to learn about her gallery exhibitions and unique dimensional pieces.
