Event description

Description


Please join me for a 2-hour fungi (for paper making) collecting adventure followed by an afternoon of hand crafting these wonderful papers yourself. We will be working with 3-4 different fungi to create uniquely coloured and textured A5, A4, and A3 sized paper. These can be used to make the ultimate in environmentally friendly any-time cards or wrapping paper, bookmarks, artworks, amazing origami, and all sorts of papercrafts for which the use of mushroom paper gives a fungal-funky new dimensional twist.
Your papers will be dried over a couple of days in a press and sent to you, or you can take them home on the day with detailed instructions on how to dry them.
A selection of teas and coffee will be available, but please bring a packed lunch and/or food to share.

Due to limited places, advanced booking is essential. To book: email ferguspd22@hotmail.com, call 07904801047, or use the Eventbrite link.
You may enjoy these three videos that give a flavour of the fun to be had creating and working with mushroom paper: Moraging with and making mushroom paper (one way) with Kelly Brook; Paper made from Oak Mazegill; and origarmi birch polypore mushroom paper fun with artist Adam Williamson:
