September Workshop - War against Waste - T shirts and Jeans to Paper
Sunday 24th September 2017,10am to 4pm
Tutor Gail Stiffe.
Turn your T-shirts and jeans into fine paper instead of sending them to landfill.
Learn how to use a Hollander Beater to turn all sorts of natural fabrics into high quality pulp and make extra strong acid free paper.
Any fabric that is 100% natural plant fibres can be made into paper. Examples are denim, hemp, linen and cottons.
Papermakers of Victoria own two Hollander beaters that are available for members to use once they have had a training session.
This workshop shall be considered to be a training session and participants will take home with them paper made from denim and T-shirts as well as a small amount of pulp to use at a later date.
A certificate will be provided to all who attend the workshop.
A fee of $10pp for prepared pulp is payable on the day.
Applications Close 7 September 2017 For further information and registration http://papermakers.org.au/workshops/
