peace paper

in the mill that healed me last winter
 many vats full of pulp
made from t-shirts and a few other bits (like hosta)
our intergenerational students
 joined drew and jana
 with some support from tom and melissa and me
 (this is our book arts class, by the way)
 making paper,
for peace, for life, for love
 we hung our pressed papers to dry on lines at the end of the class.
our class is part of this sophomore success initiative
and today, 
yard alchemy 
fresh stuff to make prints.
it's been a long time.

I loved reading about the peace paper project ... and can't help thinking about the tons of discarded clothing that could be put to so much better use!

liz, the waste resulting from fashion is disgusting. it's good to use up ever so little of it to make paper.
