The quest to make paper from what i find around me continues…
Now that the fibres have been cleaned and steeped, i gave them a bit of a jzijz, with the blender and we then pressed what water we could get out of them.
The frame was made from found fabric and wood, and fits perfectly in the sink
Then add the fibre…and after a few tries we get the fibre, mesh and paper pulp mixture correct and start to make paper.
Once the pulp is ready the making process begins!
After going through this lengthy process i reflected on the effort going into making paper and asked helena ‘why would anyone do this’, her reply ‘well i guess it’s preferable to chewing bark’, she has a point!
