One of our members gave some flax to two of our very active paper-makers, Lou & Ang. They immediately started work on transforming it into paper.
The fibre went through the beater and was prepared as a pulp ready for use.
What a stunning difference in colour emerged as the fully formed sheets dried.
It’s hard to see the paper against the table here but you can clearly see the difference between the dried pieces and the original bright green fibre.
They formed the pulp into three long paper pieces with rough edging.
Now we wait to see what they are going to do with them next.
A close up of the paper demonstrates the level of texture and amount of colour they have achieved with this wonderful outcome.
