Jeff Hansen, will teach us how to make paper using native plant fibers. In this class we will learn the different types of plant fiber, the process of extracting the fiber from the plant, and the process of forming sheets of paper from the resulting fiber. We will work in teams of two with each team processing a different plant fiber into paper. The resulting paper will be shared equally among class members. The class will be conducted at historic Karlyle Woods, located at 3440 NW Button Rd in Topeka. The cost of the workshop is $30 and includes lunch & all materials.
