The Art of Desert Papermaking
Team Building and Corporate Events
How do you make paper from cactus? This is your opportunity to find out in one of our papermaking workshops.
In a unique demonstration, you will learn how to prepare desert plants for making paper from harvesting to sheet making. Papermaking with natural plant fiber is the oldest way of making paper and one of the earliest forms of recycling!
Making paper out of plants that grow in our desert not only uses the resources that are readily available to us, but also makes beautiful paper with a natural color and feel to it. Learn about desert plants and watch the natural paper take shape before your eyes.
Now try your hand at the papermaking process making sheets of your own. Make sheets in each fiber alone and then experiment by mixing fibers to make original creations.
