Piwakawaka Trip To Papermill

After our visit was  postponed due to illness and other things, our new visit day finally arrived.
We all went down to Kamo Road and The Paper Mill in the van where there were lots of excited students.
After a fabulous welcome we split into two groups, one to make cards and the other to make some paper.
My group made paper first. We got to look at paper pulp, the machine that cuts up the paper into tiny pieces.
We got to help cut up flax, ginger leaves and lavender.
After getting a chance to touch how the pulp feels when it is mixed with water we were able to have a go at making a piece of paper.
