Our last day of a @hohareb taking over our Instagram is sadly here. Thanks so much for sharing your papermaking asvenutres with your fellow FDH members Hannah!
As part of my Madison Bubbler workshop series, I conducted a kid and caregiver's workshop. Kids younger than ten came with an adult, older than that they were fine on their own. We made lots and lots of green and dark gray sheets of paper, some with inclusions. We also learned how to use plaster casts, and made "spiderwebs" by winding string around branches and dipping it in white pulp. A lot of photos feature the press that I use--the kids were really into it. It had a previous life as a cider press. I grew up on a farm with an apple orchard--this piece of equipment has a long history of fruit squeezing.
