Workshop Description:

Let’s Zoom + Make!

Are you interested in making paper at home with materials you might already have? Then you should join us for an evening Tin Can Papermaking, where you’ll learn how to make cute circular sheets that can be used for coasters, ornaments, garlands, and more.

Registration closes November 9, 2021 to allow time for students to gather/purchase their materials. With your registration you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” on downloading and using the Zoom video app.

Please Note: The online session will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic’s private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded. Access to the recording(s) will be made available to all participants for a limited time.
