Makers Manual #24: Packaging Pulp

Makers Manual is a collaborative project between exciting makers and STORE STORE. These downloadable manuals are a practical guide to making at home for beginners and experts.

Nowadays, we are surrounded by an increasing amount of paper and cardboard packaging, whether it’s from home delivery or junk mail. This manual will show you how to take that waste and turn it back into a pulp, which can then be moulded into a new item. You will learn a simple technique by making a small serving tray, but the same principles can be used to make anything you can think of.

James Shaw is a designer and maker exploring the material landscape in a hands-on way. His work aims to interrogate the material, systemic, and formal approaches to the creation of objects. His work frequently con-
siders the resources around us; challenging the notion of ‘waste’ to create new beautiful materials. His work is in the permanent collections of MoMA, The Montreal Museum of Art, the V&A, and The Museum of London, among others.
