Papermaking with Plants

Tutor: Jonathan Korejko

Learn how to use plant materials to make decorative, colourful and unique papers. Well make
paper using the petals, leaves, fibres, seeds, perfumes and dyes from marigold, dahlia, tagetes,
sunflower, lavender, clematis, and horse radish.
Making beautiful papers from plants is very satisfying and combines many interests; plants and
gardening, an appreciation for colour and texture, and enjoyment of working with and on paper.
We will use things that grow in the tutors studio garden along with many plants from the venue
as well as things from your own garden. You will be given plenty of information on learning
more about the subject and on how to start your own papermaking unit at home.
