Students will learn the basics of (sustainable) papermaking, and conduct experiments and collaborations (both in the studio and writing practice of the course) that will direct attention to our surroundings, especially “nature.” Students will study and write poetry and/or prose.  We will read a wide range of authors, such as Thoreau, Annie Dillard, Orpingalik the Intuit songster to Rachel Carson and Mba Shole, Monica Lewis Patrick, Wendell Berry, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Xiuhtezcatl Tonatiuh Martinez, and Barbara Kingsolver.  We will try to discover and invent new ways of representing nature’s rich variety in language.
