Event Description

Saturday 27th February 2016

10am – 12pm: Botanical Fibre Papermaking – with Lesa Hepburn

Recycling your household paper waste can be a satisfying & cost effective way to upcycle & create handmade gifts for you & your friends. Participants can learn how to prepare your pulp & what waste paper to use. Equipment & materials can be sourced from waste retailers & op shops. In this workshop you will use a mould & deckle to pull sheets of paper to take home on the day. Botanical prepared leaves & fibre will be added to recycled pulp to create textured surfaces for note paper & cards. Bring along some items to emboss to leave an impression in your paper.

Please bring a notebook and pen, and something to carry your work home on – a clipboard or tray is best, but some cardboard will work.

Please note there is a $10 materials fee, payable on the day.

Cost: $50 / $35 (Healthcare Card holder) + $10 materials fee payable on the day

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
