May Babcock - 3_plantpapers.jpg

A free papermaking event where participants learn to make paper from invasive plants, with artist May Babcock. Stop by anytime between 10am-2pm to help create large, 3ft diameter papers that will later be displayed in the Galego Court community room. This event is part of 'Blackstone Watershed Papers', a temporary public artwork of artist-made paper pulp paintings installed throughout downtown Pawtucket in September. Location: Galego Community Farm, behind building #80 in the Galego Court Housing Development in Pawtucket. Turn right into Galego Court, pass a little toll booth, and keep right on the loop until you reach a parking lot. The farm is up on a slight hill behind a big chain link fence.
