 My sincere appology. The email update sent on Aug 26 still had the old date of October for Pamela Paulsrud's Lifelines listed. My mistake, her program had been rescheduled for Sat./Sun. November 2nd & 3rd. I hope this has not caused any problems for you.

Fall Harvest Papermaking  Jackie Hefty

Once again we will be looking to our gardens, along with harvesting some unusual varieties of plant materials that can be incorporated in the papermaking process.  While the fibers are cooking you will prepare and recycle paper for pulp to be added to the harvested fibers for sheet formation. (Consider your individual choices for incorporating collage, embedments, pulp painting, and more - the possibilities are endless.) Previous papermaking experience preferred.   Friday/Saturday Oct 11 & 12   1- 4:30 p.m.   $110/$15 materials fee

Eco Printing 
What better place to be inspired to do Eco Printing than surrounded by nature here at Whispering Woodlands. It is a process I can fully relate to, needing to apply patience waiting for the magic to happen, and looking forward to the surprises that delight when untying the bundles. It really is hard to beat nature's ability to create beauty, simply. The suttle nature of the prints speaks volumns. It requires a little chemistry, bundling leaves, a slow cooking and time.  Some pre workshop preparation will be necessary, see supply list. No experience necessary. Fri & Sat, Oct 25 & 26,  1 - 4:30 p.m.    $110/$15 materials
