Twelve Months of Covid - mask #1, handmade flax paper, mask #2, handmade willow bark paper. Making these masks reminded me of folding origami. Flax is a strong rattly skin-like paper. Willow bark is know for its medicinal healing properties.

Papermaking with Invasive Species - After gathering plants comes the cutting and cooking part of the process. We are lucky to have a safe well built fire pit at the school. Students K-2/3 spent the day with me outdoors drawing observations of the plant and process, using tools (scissors) to cut the plant material and collecting kindling to cook plants with water and soda ash over an open fire. I love the kid’s drawings and interest in all the stages.

Working on an installation with paper made from the Yukon invasive plant species White Sweet Clover. Despite its invasive nature Honeybees love Sweet Clover. The structure will be some kind of suspended shelter coated in beeswax. Beeswax makes the paper translucent, aromatic and water proof.

My new project is papermaking with Yukon invasive plant, White Sweetclover. Here I am on a pick along the Klondike Highway 2010. This plant was introduced in Dawson City at the turn of the century for hay production. It takes over areas normally inhabited by native species such as Fireweed and Wild Rose.
