Equipped with some cast iron and a whole lot of love, Paperhouse Studio opened in 2013. We are artists rooted in paper and print media, sharing and exploring these versatile mediums with innovative research and experimentation. Paperhouse provides an educational program that encourages the sharing of knowledge at all levels while creating a fun and playful environment to learn in. We encourage an accessible and diverse studio, offering space and expertise for artists to explore new ideas and create work. Paperhouse also developed a volunteer-for-rent program that offers young and emerging artists a space to create their art work. We encourage collaboration by offering printmaking, papermaking, natural dyes, book arts and sculpture under one roof. We are open to the public, welcoming people to come and visit our studio, and explore the world of paper and print.
Thoughts About Art and Community
We aim to offer affordable arts and crafts workshops for Toronto communities to engage in. We believe in bringing people together over a shared love of learning and making.
We offer courses - beginner and intermediate level on papermaking, natural dyes and sculptural work. We also have workshops on specific crafts - printmaking, marbling, book binding and calligraphy. Furthermore we offer fun family friendly activities like button making, craft nights and summer camps.
