Paper


Papermaking

Pre-school and older
In the paper workshop, kids create paper from various raw materials. First, they become familiar with the raw materials which paper is produced from, and learn about the history of paper. Then sheets of pulp and waste paper are processed to a pulp. Parts of plants, colourful scraps of paper, fragrant spices and other things are worked into the different varieties of pulp. "Watermarks" are made on the paper using string, and with splatter sieves a variety of different paper forms are created.
Please note: papermaking is a wet affair! Ask participants to wear "old" shoes, because it often drips on them!


Paper Mache

Pre-school and older
Sculptures are developed layer by layer, using paper and glue, then pasted over with coloured patterned papers to create animals, fruit, or small objects.


Calligraphy

Initially different alphabets are tried with various pens and colored inks. Then create artistically crafted documents such as monograms, name poems and Calligrams.
