Creative Collaboration & Studio Rental

A major goal at paperTHINKtank is to make paper art and hand papermaking accessible to the community.

    We do this in two ways:

  1. by partnering with local artists to make custom editions of paper and/or paper artworks, unique or editioned, for special projects;
  2. by renting the studio to individuals who are interested in making their own projects in handmade paper.
Artist collaboration projects have been completed with:

Individuals can elect to work in the studio with the expert guidance of Nicole Donnelly, or simply commission custom papers for a specific project.

Studio Rental for individual projects in paper includes:
  • $20/hr for full use of all equipment
  • + cost of expendable materials, such as prepared pulp
  • + one-on-one assistance or training, if needed, at $50/hr
