Narrative:

In My field of paper making I have collaborated with the banana farmers in my community. Normally there is banana harvesting for shipping in the UK every Monday. I collaborate with the farmers to collect the fiber after harvest and process these fibers to make the paper. I also collaborate with an artiste and make specific paper for her for her paintings.

Questions:

Just need a bit more information in the University of Iowa and its paper making activities.
