May 4: Paper in Bloom
This Hunt for History meeting you will make your own paper with real flora and fauna! Club members will be introduced you to papermaking processes, using recycled paper, dried plant materials and flowers. You will learn about the process of simple paper-making, producing paper that can be used for other art projects such as collage, or simply as an artwork itself. Make paper batches and learn how to include color and other materials to add texture and interest. Location: Smithy
