Make handmade paper using fibers harvested in New Orleans. We’ll definitely make paper from banana stalk fibers, and may have okra and pampas grass as well! We’ll be working in the new DIY paper mill at The Southern Letterpress. We’ll discuss how paper is made, how to set up your own papermaking facility and how to make paper out of plants from your yard. You’ll learn how to pull your own sheets of paper and make a nice stack of handmade paper for your own use.
September 18 from noon until 3 p.m.
$75 per person, limited to 8 participants. All supplies included.
