About

Sarah has the uncanny ability to reconnect us with our materials…

In collaboration with Sweet Peas Urban Gardens:

Join us and an incredible urban farm that is making a big difference! This weekend you’ll be learning how to create beautiful handmade paper from plant fibers.

All participants will get to have a hand in the paper-making process, from reducing plants down to their basic fibers all the way to pulling their completed sheets using traditional Japanese paper-making techniques and tools. They will also learn a basic knowledge of the chemistry and science behind sheet formation as well as some history of handmade paper making techniques passed down over generations. Definitely don’t miss this one of a kind workshop!
