This week we will be doing something we have never done before: give a hemp paper workshop to one of the most successful brands of cosmetics and personal care products in the world, The Body Shop (TBS). If you read my previous posts, you know that here at the farm we are BIG fans of TBS, not only for their awesome hemp-based products line but as well for their commitment to the fair trade movement and fight against animal testing.
It's a huge honor to have been invited to provide this workshop, and so I will be traveling to Lisbon and Madrid to talk about the work we do here at the farm, about hemp (of course!) and to show the TBS team how they can make hemp paper. Sounds awesome, right?
If you are wondering how to make your own hemp paper, I suggest you check the video below. Andris, Fredis and I made this video a while ago, and even though the process we use now is quite different from what we show here, there are a few tips that will help you get started. On the other hand, you are more than welcome to visit our farm (we will be open from 2nd May 2020) and take part in our hemp paper workshop where we will be teaching you step-by-step how to make hemp paper.
All in all, giving a hemp paper workshop for the TBS teams in Portugal and Spain is very exciting! Especially for me, since usually I'm more involved with the Obelisk Farm virtual community. So, this is a unique opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and spread the message about the endless uses of hemp to a global beauty brand.
I will be sharing all the bits and pieces of this adventure, so keep an eye out for our Instagram stories.
Love ❤ Débora
