Join papermaker Joanne Rich in learning the 2,000-year-old art of Chinese papermaking using hand-made tools and locally grown plants. In our first workshop, you will hand-beat plant fibres into pulp, form them into sheets, and finally dry your own hand-made paper.

Sign up for our second workshop on October 28 to make a lantern by creating a frame with reeds and branches, then wrapping it with your own handmade paper.

Registration is required and opens Friday, September 1 at 10 am.

These workshops have been funded by the Ontario Arts Council.
