Over march 2023 I took open donations via mail of peoples paper waste. This could be anything made from paper or card.
I received 29 parcels of paper things! Heres some of the goodness people sent me ; OLD DRAWINGS WOOLIES BLOCK WRAPPERS TORTILLA WRAPPERS FOOTROT FLATS COMIC COMIC CHUNKS POST IT NOTES A BEES D*#K OF GLITTER MIS-PRINTS OFFCUTS OLD BUSINESS CARDS PAINTINGS WATERCOLOUR WORKS PLAYING CARDS OLD BOOK PAGES PACKING TICKETS COLLAGE CUTTINGS JUNK MAIL FLYERS MAGAZINE PAGES SHOPPING LIST USED NOTES WIZZ FIZZ WRAPPER HALOWEEN TREAT BAGS INK DRAWINGS ORIGAMI PAPER FLURO OFFCUTS AND MORE
At the start of April I opened all the parcels and pulped it all into THE PEOPLES BATCH. It has all kinds of mad rad chunks running through each sheet, and theres two kind of tones made, as the pulp changed throughout the course of making this large batch.
342 sheets later, we have THE PEOPLES PAPER BATCH #1 MADE FOR THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE ( AND THE PULP PROFESSOR )
AWESOME FOR MAKING ART ON! GREAT FOR FINELINERS, GOUACHE, ACRYLICS, PENCILS, PRINTMAKING AND MORE!

I'll be running this project/batch a few times a year, so if you want to get involved and send something to be included next time, I'll be launching BATCH #2 in June 2023 :)
Each sheet is 100% hand soaked, chunked, machine pulped, hand pulled, hand pressed and hand harvested.
