These are photos of the Papermaking with Plants of the Laguna Workshop I taught this past weekend at the Laguna de Santa Rosa Heron Hall in Santa Rosa, CA. The participants enjoyed two fantastic December days of sunshine and papermaking using local plants.
These photos were taken by my husband Timothy S. Allen (http://allentimphotos2.wordpress.com) and show some of the activities during the two days. We gathered plants, cooked them, beat them to a pulp and then formed many sheets of handmade paper to discover what great paper we could make from the different plants of the Laguna de Santa Rosa area around Heron Hall. It was a great workshop, and thanks to the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation and all the very creative participants!
