Harvest Papermaking

Fall is a great time to harvest and process plant fibers for papermaking. Seastone Papers, a teaching studio for hand papermaking, surface designing, and book arts on Christiantown Road, West Tisbury, will offer a workshop on Saturday, Nov. 24 from 1 to 4 p.m. using local plant fibers which will be prepared, cooked, and beaten for sheet forming.

These plants will include cornhusk, iris, daffodil leaves, leeks, and ornamental grasses. The workship is an opportunity to experiment as participants create sheets of paper exploring interesting fiber combinations and inclusions.

The cost is $65. More information is available by calling Sandy Bernat at 508-693-5786.
