Join us for an afternoon of papermaking at Zealandia! You will be learning how to make paper from native plants and about the important connections between people, resources, and the environment. This workshop is suitable for all skill levels – just be prepared to get your hands dirty! All materials are included, and your finished paper will be sent to you after it has dried. Light refreshments are provided!

This workshop will be led by Rob Kennedy, whose papermaking brings together his love of science, nature and making things. He works predominantly with New Zealand native plants which he sources to help conservation management, and avoids waste going to landfill.
