Upcoming Presentations & Classes

It has been just as much fun sharing the process behind the Foreshadowing project as it has been working on it! I've been giving presentations to various groups over the past few months and have more exciting events coming up this spring.

On Saturday, March 23rd, I'll be heading to Pierce Cedar Creek Institute (701 Cloverdale Rd, Hastings, MI) for the Barry County Science Festival. If you're in that neck of the woods, stop by between 10-3 and try your hand at pulling a piece of phragmites paper with me.

On Saturday, April 13th, Erin Pavloski (Regional Invasive Species Coordinator at Ingham Conservation District) and I are doing a two-part presentation at the MSU Science Festival. Erin will be talking about Invasive Plant Species found in Michigan backyards (12:30 - 1:00 PM) and I'll be sharing my process for harvesting and making them into paper (1:30 - 2 PM)

If you'd like to experience a complete hands-on process in making paper from invasive plant species, I'll be teaching a class at Ludington Area Center for the Arts on May 3 and 4. It's a two-day class in which we'll get down and dirty - picking, cutting, boiling, and beating garlic mustard - and turning it into paper! More details coming soon.
