Flat white stuff that is green all over! Papermaking is one of the most inherently sustainable industries in Europe and yet many still see it as the 'baddie' that cuts down endless trees and uses immense amounts of water.

This workshop intends to reveal the true paper industry facts; an industry supported by well-known environmentalist and author Jonathon Porritt, a regular face on our television screens in the 1970s representing the Friends of the Earth charity.

This workshop takes the data and explains it in a clear practical way for children to understand, so is as practical and active as possible. Groups are encouraged to vent all their criticisms relating to paper production and then together we review the facts; reinforced by seeing machine made paper in action and making their own handmade sheet. 

There is a teachers fact sheet available for use back in the classroom.
