Vegetable Papyrus, a presentation by Yuka Petz

This live demonstration is an introduction to making vegetable papyrus, a proto-paper made solely from fruits and vegetables. This organic and non-toxic artform provides ample opportunities to create stunning compositions that reveal the delicate veining and organic structures of the fruits and vegetables you work with. Yuka will demonstrate the entire process of making vegetable papyrus, with time for questions and answers. You can download detailed instructions on how to make vegetable papyrus at home here:
