As a whole group together (15 min) recycling principles are discussed then a range of premade recycled handmade papers are shown. A small amount of pulp is made to show the blending process then the set-up & assembling of the workspace & equipment. Following this an informative papermaking demonstration showing the process of making the paper right through to pressing the newly formed stack & hanging it to dry.
Starting with the first 6 papermakers 1 per workstation approx. 15min (apron is supplied). The rest of the group will need to be occupied with other activities of the teachers choice (marbling is available as an add-on see below). All paper made will be pressed ready to be hung up & dried.
