Recycled Papermaking Workshop  (Special Events)

Join Spartan Upcycle and artist Meg Heeres for a fun, hands-on papermaking workshop in an industrial setting -- MSU's recycling facility.

Fri. 6/24
6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
$25 per person
At the MSU Surplus Store & Recycling Center
Reservation is required
Please purchase your ticket for this workshop in advance at

Working with discarded paper collected in MSU's recycling bins, participants will transform scrap material into beautiful handmade paper for making cards, journals, and many other projects. Participants will make their own paper pulp, screen it, and form sheets using secondhand and upcycled equipment. Add a personal touch by embedding unique items provided by Spartan Upcycle, including flowers, yarn, sequins and more. Everyone will leave the workshop with some sheets of their own paper to dry at home.

While leading the making process, experienced papermaker and artist, Meg Heeres, will discuss simple papermaking equipment and offer tips for building a papermaking set-up at home. Attendees will also have the chance to explore MSU's recycling facility, where millions of pounds of campus recyclables are hand-sorted, baled, and shipped out to recycled content manufacturers every year.

This workshop is suitable for ages 6 to 106 years old and for all abilities and experience!
