    Turn your T-shirts and jeans into fine paper instead of sending to landfill. Learn how to use a Hollander Beater to turn all sorts of natural fabrics into high quality pulp and make extra strong acid free paper. Any fabric that is 100% natural plant fibres can be made into paper. Examples are denim, hemp, linen and cottons.

    Joomchi is a traditional Korean technique that could broadly be described as felting paper. I give this method a distinctly Australian twist by combining locally sourced fibres in handmade papers with easily purchased Thai kozo sheets rather than using only hanji (dyed Korean dak fibre). I also take the pain out of the labour intensive process by using my feet!

    My original teacher Jiyoung Chung has been impressed (and entertained) by this approach and has invited me to participate regularly in international joomchi exhibitions in USA and Korea.
