The Flotsam and Jetsam of Irish Life

paper_studio.jpgRebecca has created a paper studio out of the flotsam and jetsam of Irish life. Fibers from a garden left fallow for winter, a castoff vat from behind the school, woolen blankets from a secondhand shop in Ennis, a paint stirrer to break down the pulp, and an old press Robert (the school’s wondrous wizard) found somewhere on his travels. It’s beginning to look and smell like a real paper studio.
