Miscanthus Paper Printing Exhibition at IBERS

Research scientists from the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) collaborated with Aberystwyth Printmakers to curate an extraordinary exhibition featuring diverse artwork printed on Miscanthus paper. Miscanthus grass sourced from its native countries in Asia, is typically cultivated as a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, and used for producing heat, power, and various high-value products. However, this exhibition introduced an innovative aspect to the utility of Miscanthus – as a medium for papermaking and art. The collaborative effort of the scientists and artists resulted in paper from Miscanthus and generated some really beautiful art and prints on the Miscanthus paper.
