Producing your first sheet of paper is an unforgettable experience, and from there you can explore all the texture and variety that papermaking has to offer. Paper pulp is made from a astonishingly wide range of plants such as nettle, pampas grass and yucca, even fruit and vegetables such as onions, bananas and corn, and once the pulp has been made you can add other ingredients : embed it with feathers, petals, spices; emboss it with leaves or string - the possibilities are endless.
