A few months back on a Papermakers Group we got a request from this teacher for donated handmade paper for their project
Here is the follow letter from that teacher
She sent many photos of the happy children involved in the project
Hello all you generous donors of gorgeous paper - 28 of you!!!!
It has been a full month since I finished my artist residency at Continental School. We had SO much fantastic response to my call for papers, it was absolutely wonderful! Thank you so very much for helping us celebrate 100 years - 1916 - 2016!!!
I send you thanks with this photo montage. We had a total blast!!
Every second grader (90 ct.) bound a blank book with every interior sheet being handmade paper…the teachers were going to have them transfer their stories/illustrations inside.
Every sixth grader (80 ct.) wrote short stories, then chose paper/binding/collage/illustration to support the content of their narrative. Super!!
All the third and fifth grades (160ct.) worked with the paper too…the final result was a beautiful, permanent mural to commemorate 100 years’ anniversary.
Leftover papers, supplies, equipment were distributed to the very happy faculty, especially the teacher who holds a meeting of the “Art Club”.
I can’t tell you how grateful and touched I am at your outpouring of generous donations! Every single bit was used. No joke!
