Oh we love the paper making process! Its a long process, where it takes hours and hours to pick paper, shredding it, let it sit and dry, but thats what makes it #SelfMade! Being involved in the entire process IS satisfying and rewarding.
Our Handmade Paper Making workshop is back, 13th of July, at our makerspace. Join @tefanyosha of @figurenotes for the workshop, and bring home 8 different types of handmade paper! 🙌🏼
The previous one SOLD OUT in days, so be sure to register quick this time. To register, just send us a DM or email us at [email protected]indoestri.com
Looks like our colleagues had a fantastic time at the weekend celebrating 60 years of LEIPA papermaking in Schwedt, Germany! We can’t wait for more photos to be shared of the family-friendly, fun day organised by the team including bouncy castle, face painting and lots of food! The weather was fantastic and drinks and ice-cream was flowing – congratulations LEIPA Schwedt on this massive milestone! #papermaking #60years #celebrations #schwedt #germany #papermill #funandgames #familyday #leipa
Part of the RAAY paper making operation is our technologically advanced confetti production facility. That's the inner bag and lovely red outer wrap of an incense packet being turned into tiny pieces. Also, quaking grass hanging up to dry and then be made into pulp, and lemon verbena leaves drying, to either be added to paper, or made into tea. #diy #lovestonehouse #recycle #reuse #papermaking #naturalmaterials #raayoflight #makingpaper
Reciclaje de un periódico. 6 pliegos crean 1600 cm cuadrados que corté en tamaño A4. Por qué salen grises... Dice la teoría del color que entre haya más, hay menos. El cian, el negro, el amarillo y el magenta (las tintas empleadas en la cuatricromía) al ser disueltos en agua se destruyen asi mismos dando lugar a un monótono.
Hoy el sol salió en Saltillo y bien fuerte así que a aprovecharlo! Sun-Day #papermaking #paper #paperfiber #workshop #dardhunter #comicbook

Lots of custom stuff coming up!! I actually love doing special projects like this, so Big Thanks to those of you currently waiting on beautiful books. I’m always in flux between making paper and now books almost every day. It’s a delicate balance, but always on my mind and in my hands. Thank you for your support and trust.
Love in a Mist handmade recycled paper sheets. Flowers have this beautiful, delicate blue petal which I can't seem to retain during the drying process. Ah well - the yellow halo around the petals is also pretty and lends the paper a vintage look. #clumsyclarissacrafts #papermaking #loveinamist
"What I thought I’d lost was residing in your memory in me" is a performance installation in which artist Stella Chen meditates upon her lived experiences of Taiwan with her family.
A bag of rice inherited from her late grandmother (which Chen transforms into paper sheets), offers a post-memory lens to interrogate colonial and genocidal history in Taiwan. The industrialisation of agriculture, mining and manufacturing propelled Taiwan’s economy growth, while also inducing intense trauma.
The work is dedicated to Chen’s grandmother, with whom she did not get to speak with before she passed. As a migrant in Australia with no family of origin from here, this action allows me to move forward with an acknowledgement of my lineage. "What I thought I’d lost was residing in your memory in me” by Stella Chen, 2019, Taiwanese rice, steel, yam, felt, aple, mirror, peeler, muslin, artist’s body
Learn more about Stella and her works at our papermaking workshop this Wednesday. Link in bio.
