Artist Julia Goodman will teach you a creative way to make paper with minimal equipment and maximum fun. This workshop includes a brief introduction to the history of paper, a hands-on introduction to making paper and taking home your very own handmade paper wasp! We will be getting messy and making paper all day, and have two interactive presentations on papermaking at 1pm and 3pm.
