The programme includes an analysis of Matthias Koops' book on the
History of Papermaking; an explanation of how waste paper is
recycled into premium quality newsprint, including a description of
how the staples, glue, plastic and ink is removed; a talk about life
as a paper conservator with the opportunity to bring along samples
for discussion; and an introduction to the Original Society of
Papermakers (OSP) and a re-enactment of negotiations between the
Master Papermakers and the OSP. It is hoped that there will be time
for a talk about Mill Tokens, a rare survivor from the Papermaking
Industry.
