Speaking of the Elements, Sheryl Jaffe, our KPC instructor extraordinaire was interviewed for PREVIEWMASS . You can find the article Earth, Air, Light and Water on page 10. Her August workshop scheduled to take place at Khandroling Farm is listed in the article.
Sheryl was at the Tsegyalgar East booth yesterday in the WGBH Asparagus Festival making paper with passers by. She attracted young and old introducing them to the magic of papermaking with local fibers. She brought asparagus pulp cooked and beaten for many hours which translated into amazing beautiful and string paper. The community also did demos of Yantra Yoga, Vajra Dance, and modern Tibetan Dance next to our booth.

Brenda Lilly, origami artist and papermaker stopped by to visit the booth and try her hand with the asparagus pulp. Later in the summer Brenda will be teaching a Butterfly origami workshop after returning from the International Origami convention.
I made a large basket of multicolored “seeded” papers embedding wildflowers, larkspur, poppies and cosmos in a variety of pulp and asparagus too.
