Papermaking using native plants moves from conservation to creative endeavour with a fair degree of problem solving along the way. Initially, the motivation was to generate an income stream from harakeke (NZ native flax) for conservation projects.

Now the challenge of turning plant mass into paper has matured into a passion for using basic chemistry and simple technology to provide a timeless medium for creative self-expression.

Rob returns for another year to offer the opportunity for anyone to drop in and experience paper making. For those who want to take paper away with them, there will be a range of products in the pop-up shop and for the most adventurous there are daily one hour workshops where participants can try their hand at paper making and receive the products of their labours.

Drop in: Koha
Workshop: $20 (please pay as you arrive)

This is an event involved in the Featherston Booktown Festival on Friday 11th, Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th May celebrating everything to do with books, writers and reading.

The three-day programme includes writing workshops; poetry readings; talks by leading authors and illustrators; and a book fair including stalls with rare and second hand books. There are also events specifically for children while this year’s festival has a special emphasis on poetry and young adult fiction.

Take a look at our website for the full programme of events.
