“Most of us, faced with an unfamiliar plant judge it on its visual qualities; some might think about its culinary possibilities. Maureen Richardson however would be thinking about its potential as raw material for craft papermaking. “If you can grow it, I can make paper out of it” she says. Bluebells, phormium, horsetail, leek, anemone, tulip, goosegrass – are amongst the 150 other species that have fallen at some stage into Maureen’s pot, been pulped and turned into richly coloured and textured paper.
