Treewhispers Project: call for participation

Treewhispers is an international collaboration with handmade paper relating to trees started in the year 2000 by Pamela Paulsrud and the late Marilyn Sward. Since that time many hands have been involved sharing art, poetry and stories relating to trees—these works gracing many galleries and inspiring those who walk through the “forest”. Many of you have sent a paper round, some have sent enough for an entire “tree” and some have assisted in papermaking events. Thank you—this couldn’t have happened without you!

It is an honor to announce that Treewhispers has been invited to the Sharjah Calligraphy Biennial. Please consider joining in! With your help we can grow the installation even more before it’s sent. Criteria for contributions are on the Treewhispers website—but essentially flat, round handmade paper with a connection to a tree—e.g. tree stories, poetry, etc. Any size, any number per person—the more the better! I’m sending the work Dec. 1st so will need the work by the middle of November to bind and pack. I’m so thrilled and honored—and would love to share the excitement with you!
