Participants will learn to make handmade paper from Laguna de Santa Rosa plants and create unique handmade paper artworks using all natural materials from the Laguna. During a walk around the native plant garden, we will identify plants suitable for papermaking and gather dried leaves and bark from trimmed branches or fallen twigs and also invasive plants that can be used for papermaking. The process will include preparing plants, cooking, beating and sheet forming with Asian and Western papermaking techniques. The handmade papers can be used for drawing, painting, printmaking and collage as well as for creating greeting cards.
