Our outreach partners from St. Patrick’s Center, CWIT, Magdalene St. Louis, and Lydia’s House really showed us their creative sides! Each participant learned, “…how to recycle paper to make [not only] new paper [but also] beautiful things.” We had inspiring workshops this month as we blended mail, used folders, misprinted cards and paper found in participant’s pockets into paper pulp! From there everyone pulled their own sheets, adding natural elements such as flowers, weeds, and seeds to transform what would have been trash into unique treasures. Journal covers, bookmarks, ornaments, necklaces, and seed packets were just the start. Already looking forward to next month.
