Making paper is so much fun! Join us to learn the basics of how to make paper with screens and blenders and create papers in a variety of colors and textures. We will add different ingredients to our paper recipes and experiment with the results! Ultimately, we will turn our papers into assorted handmade books to take home and enjoy.
