Broom paper

Book Bombs reunited this week in the Bay Area for some rabble rousing papermaking. Continuing our investigation of invasive plants, broom fiber was harvested from Farm Alley and the parking lot of Wildcat Canyon Regional Park (pictured above and below).
The stalks were soaked to harvest the bast fiber (below).
And papermaking ensued. Pictures to come...
