Paper-making In the Craft Garden at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

Sat Oct 1, 2022
11:00am to 3:00pm CT
5 and up
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

Celebrate the return of cooler weather and our Craft Garden by learning how to make paper!

Find inspiration from paper-making plants in the garden, and learn how to use recycled paper and plant fibers to form a sheet of paper. Watch as the vat of pulp is prepared, and then pull your own sheet of paper with a mold and deckle by couching the sheet and pressing the paper. Give your project a unique twist by adding fibers and dried plant material to your paper.

This activity will take place rain or shine, outdoors in the HCCC Craft Garden, and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Participants should be prepared to get a little wet during the papermaking process. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM and participate in a 15 – 20-minute activity. Materials are provided.
