Last week, the Grade 3 students enjoyed a visit from Orna Shazar, a fibre artist, who ran a workshop about paper making. We explored how paper making is inspired by nature and had an opportunity to look at an old wasps nest. Students learned how different materials can be used to make paper and they examined paper made from leek and asparagus. We discussed how the New Canadians needed this medium to help record their transactions and stories. Each student had the chance to make their own piece of paper and had a wonderful time!
