Wasps and Handcrafted Paper

Sunday, November 18
1 – 2 p.m.

Did you know that wasps are the original papermakers? Join us to learn how these fascinating insects make paper their way. Then we’ll make our own paper using newspaper, magazines, and junk mail. Blend in pieces of nature such as seeds, leaves, and flower petals to create works of art. Explore how nature and recycling go hand-in-hand for wasps and humans. No live wasps will be part of this program.

This program runs rain or shine and is appropriate for adults and families with children age 5 and up. No strollers please. Members $5, Non-members $8. Registration required. Click here to register.
