Eva von Mantripp reviewed: Make paper from wild and garden plants

"We had an awesome experience. ✨️🙌💐 Bryan provided a wealth of knowledge, inspired us and drew our attention all day. It was introduced by a walk around the garden, demonstrations of what part of plants/weeds makes the strength paper needs. The picking of a weed, the breaking down process to to be able to use it, the scent when boiling it. Followed by the art, the joy and creativeness of producing paper from plants. It most certainly drew your whole soul! We will come again! The setting was an oasis in Gower, filled with inspiration that honours our Earthly resorces. Thank you, Bryan! "

Wild Plant Paper responded:

"Thank you Eva! We had a lovely day, and I look forward to seeing pictures of the Mustard plant paper you made. It was a lovely bright green!"

Angela reviewed: Make paper from wild and garden plants

"A relaxed, fun and informative day. It is very much an outdoor experience so a good pair of boots is essential as is a good packed lunch! With Bryans's expert guidance I was thrilled to be able to make and take home my very own paper and possibly make my own at home too. "

Wild Plant Paper responded:

"Thanks Angela - it was a good day, if a bit chilly! All the best making some paper of your own."
