Rather than taking on a more typical art project, we all learned the messy, fun process of creating your own paper.
Paper shreddings and water are mixed in a blender and then added to a basin of water. The resulting sludge is captured between homemade mesh frames. After pressing them together and sponging them to remove excess water, we flipped onto a nearby table covering.
Once we had six damp rectangles, we covered each one with a thin piece of cloth. After we give them a couple days to dry, we’ll have textured paper that we can turn into notecards or even sew together to form books.
