Natural Ink + Papermaking
Learn to create your own paper with polypore mushrooms, a non-toxic, plentiful and easy-to-find mushroom. On Saturday, we’ll learn how to find these polypores and create several sizes of paper. On Sunday, we’ll finish our paper and make ink out of walnuts. Plan to go home with a stack of art paper and a bottle of ink. If time allows, we’ll make a quill pen as well.
- All materials provided. A lunch break will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring a bagged lunch.
