NJ Audubon: Fungi Paper-Making Workshop Series

November 18, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This is a 2-day workshop where we will make the paper on November 18 and then use it for collage, sculpture, and/ or greeting cards on December 2.

Led by Dorothy Smullen, Teacher Naturalist and former president of the New Jersey Mycological Association. This is a fun activity that has many decorative uses – making paper from just fungi and water. Only certain species of fungi are used in this process: shelf or bracket fungi that have thick cell walls made of chitin. Chitin (also found as the exoskeleton of insects and other arthropods) is a polysaccharide similar to cellulose which is used to make paper from trees. Mushrooms and fungi are in the news a lot these days concerning Medicinal’s and myco-materials (fungi-leather and packaging). All materials provided. Limited to 10 participants.

Registration required by November 17 at 4:00 PM.

COST: $40 members, $50 nonmembers.
