One of the processes that it takes to create handmade paper is the cooking of the natural material. Here willow bark is being cooked. Times vary on how long to cook the bark or leaves depending on the particular plant material used. The project has taken place at West Marin School and at the Commons in Point Reyes Station, CA. A large nest in the Commons will be decorated with the handmade paper feathers on Sunday, September 22, 2013, 1-4 PM. Also, feathered nests will be installed in trees along Route One in Point Reyes Station. The public art project “For the Birds” is sponsored by Gallery Route One and Lucid Art Foundation.
