Demonstrations with our Teaching Artist Cohort
Fri 5-6pm and Sat 1-6pm
Public Pulp: Pulling Sheets in the Parking Lot with Angela Davis Fegan | Sat, 12pm
Community make and take: come and learn about how natural fibers are transformed from fashion, to pulp, to the ideal printing surface.

Participants are asked to leave their wet sheets behind for the next person to take and leave with an already dry sheet made by the previous participants, bonding us as a community. All labor is collective and paper making is a community practice. This demo will be held outdoors in the Hubbard Street Lofts parking lot.
