Paper Workshop

The aim of this workshop is to provide a safe, supportive, diverse and creative space which is accessible to all.

We cater for many levels of skill and understanding and work with the individual to develop their personal practice enabling creative expression, independence, and a sense of self.

Paper Workshop

We offer the following 2 and 3 dimensional processes: papier mâché sculpture, paper making and pulping, drawing, painting, and collage. The workshop mantra is reuse, recycle, repurpose, and we work with many donated materials and items from the local community.

As professional artists, we provide a safe, supportive, diverse and creative space which is accessible to all. We cater for many levels of skill and understanding and work with each individual to develop their confidence and personal practise enabling creative expression and independence. Below is everything you need to know about our Paper Workshop.

Kind words from our Artmakers

  • I am very happy when I am making. I enjoy paper and building my models and I like to help my friends in the workshop. I also help set up the room in the morning with Sharon.

    Jenna F Artmaker
  • I enjoy teaching other people how to make paper. I have no sight and I am able to do the whole process on my own. The paper I make is then used in the printmaking workshop to be printed on. I have produced my own paper made collages which I have then printed on. My work has been exhibited at the Mercer Gallery – when is the next exhibition?

    Andrew M Artmaker
  • I love making paper quills, its such a relaxing thing to do. I enjoy drawing my designs and then Sharon helps me construct the channels in which the paper quills sit. It was great seeing my work exhibited in the church – I felt very proud.
