Zero-Waste: Papermaking WorkshopVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Hidden Forests Education Programs
*This workshop suitable for aged 12 and above.
Besides using old scrap paper, what items can we use for papermaking? Can we up-cycle waste items when making paper? During this workshop we will recycle paper, cotton and silk scraps to create new paper.
To make the process even more eco-friendly, participants are also encouraged to bring any unwanted “waste” to use in this experimental workshop. Join us to investigate how we can make paper with “waste” and together we will share the art of papermaking and seek solutions to save trees and natural resource.
Suggested “waste” objects: soft plastic, fabric, cotton ball, fur and other soft materials.
