Making Paper

Tuesday March 14, 2017:

On Tuesday morning, we learned the process of making paper during Wordsworth’s time–pretty time-consuming and complicated! We had to

  1. Scoop bits of cotton from a water bin onto a flat, rectangular screen
  2. Choose flowers/grass/other odd little things to stick onto the screen, to be pressed into the paper
  3. Press the screen in between boards and stamp excess water out (dance party was optional during this step)
  4. Pull the paper carefully off of the pressing board and place onto drying board, hopefully nicely intact!
