Papermaking with Native Milkweed with Aimee Lee

When: Nov. 21-22, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2015

In this brand-new course, students will be taught how to identify, harvest and fully process native milkweed plants in the Morgan’s urban garden. After steaming, stripping, cooking and beating these long, silky stem fibers, students will set up vats to make paper of 100% milkweed and variants that include abaca and other strong, buffer fibers. This is an ideal experience for those who already have milkweed in their gardens or access to abundant plants, enjoy working hard with their hands and bodies and are interested in making paper directly from plants.

Price: $150
