Week 8 – Let’s make paper and art! Part 1

We bought paper making kits for the students to make their own paper and portraits. The most important part of the kit is a frame with fine mesh in the middle, blended paper/pulp fiber, and glue. We tried the pre-blended paper pulp we bought online first as a trial run. The kit also came with dried flowers and leaves that can be added directly to make beautiful art.

Part 1: used pre-purchased paper pulp
Part 2: once we collected enough recycled paper we made our own pulp!
