Join the Paper Perseveres! A history of paper as a precious resource short talk and recycled paper making workshop as part of Sustainability Week 2024. Join the Guild of Students for a short talk from the Special Collections and Archives team about how paper has been prized and preserved over the years. We will then be making our very own paper from wrapping paper scraps. Whilst this is drying there will be an opportunity to look at examples discussed in the talk in the University archives collection in the Sydney Jones Library.
