Did you know that paper was invented over 2000 years ago, and most Canadians use 308 kilograms of paper per year? In this session, we will be making our own handmade paper from recycled scraps. Gather your scrap paper and learn about environmental sustainability and the chemistry of paper manufacturing.
Preparation: blender with adult supervision, scrap paper, water, paper towels or rags, a large plate or surface to work on. Optional: pantyhose and a wire coat hanger, a large plastic tub, things to add to the paper (dried flowers and leaves, coloured paper)
Expert: Botanical PaperWorks, an eco-company that makes plantable paper.
