About the Class

Create artisanal paper while making a difference in our environment! Learn Jane’s tried and true methods and materials for creating rag paper out of invasive plant species in Michigan. Using a mold and deckle, you will create paper from raw, dried plant materials collected from the wild, and leave with beautiful sheets of truly unique paper to take home. This class is perfect for beginners, curious artists and paper makers! Jane will share about her work, creative process, and her exhibition: Foreshadowing.


Jane Kramer

Jane is a fine art photographer in East Lansing, Michigan, and the recipient of an Individual Artist Grant and a Chris Clark Fellowship from the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. She has a degree in Anthropology from the University of Minnesota and photography training from the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, Montana.


Jane’s projects are created with a conceptual approach and are focused on environmental and social issues. Her ongoing project, Foreshadowing – Endangered & Threatened Plant Species, began upon selection into the Art from the Lakes program and with funding, in part, from Michigan Nature Association. For this project, Jane photographs the shadows of Michigan’s endangered and threatened plant species and transfers the images onto paper she makes from invasive plant species.
