Bamboo is lovely in the garden and is even better made into paper
The  plant is first cut into tiny pieces , then cooked with soda ash for about 20 hours I put it in a crock pot outside and leave it over night . It is then rinsed and put in the blender , from the blender into the vat of water, I add some leaves at this point and then  pull sheets of paper.


  1. This is perfectly beautiful, Lis! Love it! I can only grow northern bamboo, which has these really BIG leaves. I'm sure they'd work fine in paper, too, but would give a totally different effect.

  2. I love this!!!
