This workshop will cover how to make paper from local plant materials found in the Laguna de Santa Rosa. Learn what plants will make paper. During a walk around the native plant landscape at the Laguna Environmental Center, they will identify plants suitable for papermaking and gather dried leaves and bark from trimmed branches or fallen twigs.

They will also talk about and experiment with invasive plants that can be used for papermaking. They will cook the plant materials, beat the fibers, and make paper from them. The emphasis will be on creative problem solving and creative use of materials to make unique handmade paper using sustainable methods that do not harm the environment. Pulps that the instructor will bring to supplement the ones gathered in the workshop will also be used in the class, such as kozo and abaca.
