Papermaking

Hilarie Rath, Instructor at Paper Discovery Center

Kim Grummer, President of Arnold Grummer, LLC

Do you wish you could enjoy the beauty of your garden just a little longer? Perhaps you’d like to share a piece of it with loved ones who live far away. The Garden will be offering a class on handmade card creation using botanicals, so you can preserve your favorite garden treasures. In this class you will learn how to form handmade paper sheets using botanical infused pulp, and you will learn how to embed pressed botanicals to create original greeting cards. Take home whatever you create! Pressed flowers will be available, but we encourage participants to press and bring their own botanicals from home. This class is limited to twelve participants. Last year, we sold out, so register early!

Don’t delay! Register right away as classes may fill quickly. We also value our instructors’ time, so classes may risk being canceled due to low early enrollment. Thank you!

After You Register
We will contact you the week of the program to confirm your enrollment. Please dress according to the weather for all outdoor programs. No rain or snow dates are planned. Classes open one half-hour before starting time.

Cancelations & Refunds
Classes canceled due to low enrollment, or hazardous weather conditions are refunded automatically. You will be notified by phone if a program is canceled. In cases of inclement weather, call 920.491.3691 ext. 107 to check the status of the program. If you must cancel your registration for a program, your registration fees will be refunded if notice is received at least five days prior to the program.

Valerie Dantoin, NWTC Sustainable Agriculture Instructor

Explore various herbs; their unique properties, role in history, medicine, food, and other traditional uses. Examine growing practices, harvest, and preservation. Make organic preparations; i.e., tea, infusions, tinctures, and salves. Each week focuses on a specific body system and the best herbs to support your health.

In this hands-on workshop, discover the herbs that boost and support your immune system, and how to infuse them with non-water solvents right in your own home. You’ll practice making a vinegar of four thieves infusion, a glycerin infusion, and a calendula medicated oil infusion. Take home what you create!
