Participants in this workshop session will learn the art of handmade papermaking. This includes beating recycled cotton paper, forming sheets, and creating “botanical inclusions” using flowers and plants from the UALR Campus garden. Participants will learn the art of creating beautiful sheets of recycled paper using homegrown botanical elements.
This lecture and workshop are presented in conjunction with the Art in the Garden series, funded in part by a UALR Sustainability Grant. Additionally, this lecture and workshop are made possible by the generous support of the Windgate Foundation.
