Local Classes

We can always develop a custom workshop or offer one on one instruction, but the workshop offerings for May/June will be a bit stalled due to a large project.

The Open Vat night this month is this friday May 14th at 6:30, as always feel free to stop by for refreshments, and a free and open atmosphere to pull some sheets and talk about projects. This month there will also be an opening reception of photographs by Tamara Melcher on the first floor.

Mass Art is running 2 one week continuing education workshops in June. These should be very good intensive classes, they are taught by Drew Mattot.The first class is a fundamentals class open to all levels and the second class covers more advanced techniques.


3DFB205 From Fiber to Paper: Breaking the Pattern and Undoing the Weave

3DFB207 Paper Pulp as Artists Media

Drew  Matott is a book artist, printmaker, the co-founder of several papermaking studios and projects, including the Green Door Studio and the Combat Paper Project (combatpaper.org).

Volunteers Needed


We need extra hands to help produce an edition of 1000 4×4 pulp paintings for a handpapermaking magazine  fundraiser. Volunteers will be assisting  Beverly Sky on this project. This is a great opportunity to learn how to use the 22 x 30 mould and how to make a large pulp painted edition.

Work on this project will be going on Wednesday through monday, if you are interested in volunteering e-mail bostonpapercollective@gmail.com.
