Papermaking

Papermaking
Papermaking

This activity can be used as a tool to encourage group work, develop communication skills and understand procedures, all while educating students on paper recycling and protecting the environment.

Students of all ages can make their own hand-made paper in just one session.

KESAB can provide the equipment and expertise to assist your students in producing their own hand-made recycled paper, as well as an understanding of the links to recycling and environmental sustainability.

All you need is a suitable wet area, water, and a supply of A4 sized fabric pieces and newspaper to begin creating your own recycled paper.

You can choose to have a KESAB education officer attend your site, or hire out a papermaking kit on a weekly loan. See the School Resources tab for more information on hiring a kit.

Please note: Limited subsidies are available for schools in some council areas. Please contact KESAB and speak to a Waste Education Officer for more information.
