      Make Paper from Garden Plants

      Learn the process of making paper by hand, start to finish.  Beginning with collecting raw mateterials and plants from Deborah Landry's art studio gardens. Participants will learn to make handmade paper from plants and create unique paper artworks using all natural materials. There will demostrations of how to add pressed flowers and plants into a sheet of paper, called inclusions. This is done by sandwiching a plant between two sheets of paper. Students are invited to bring pressed plants of their own as well as use plants provided. During a walk around the 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 papermaking techniques.  The handmade papers can be used for drawing, painting, printmaking and collage as well as for creating greeting cards. Beginners and the experienced are both encouraged to participate.
