Khandroling Paper Cooperative to Participate in The Rags to Riches Exhibit Celebrating Franklin County’s Paper Industry, July 6, 2014

We will demonstrate our papermaking process at the Rags to Riches: Franklin County’s Paper Industry at Greenfield’s Industrial Museum. Join us for lots of old time music and fun on the Green River

The Critter will be there  to demonstrate the magical transformation of turning rags into pulp for making paper. We will also have our long scroll for you to leave your mark with our handmade Dragon’s Song Black Walnut Ink we made last fall.

Come make some paper that you can take home with you. Khandroling Paper Cooperative is closely associated with the Dzogchen Community, founded by Tibetan Teacher Choegyal Namkhai Norbu. We specialize in recycling sacred texts and finding recycling solutions for analog tapes. Our papers can be used for sacred calligraphy practice. Our instructors, Sheryl Jaffee (master papermaker/artist) and Brenda Lee (Origami) and Madeline Leibling (Art Therapist) share their skills with us several times a year making a variety of fantastic papers for multiple uses in bookmaking, masks/sculptures, wallets, wall hangings, scrolls, embossed etc.

[Sheryl’s joyful exuberance for all things paper is infectious. She is probably saying “perfect” to this young woman’s first piece of handmade paper]
