Now Open: Book and Paper Arts Studio

Dear Friends of the Folk School,

Because of you: We’ve completed the new Book and Paper Arts Studio! It was so exciting to watch it change every day as it was being built. It is a beautiful tri-room studio with large separate rooms for printmaking, a wet room for paper arts and a cathedral of a classroom. The second level above will allow for safe storage of documents and classroom supplies.

Because of you, the spaces are light and bright from many windows, the workbenches, flooring and paint colors coordinate to make the environment inviting in gold and beige tones, the covered porch is large and will allow for an extra outdoor space, especially for marbling and paper making. What a glorious plenty!

Because of you, we are acquiring the new equipment that will allow us to become a “destination” school for all things Book, Calligraphy, Marbling, Paper and Print. The list includes a pulp beater for papermaking, an etching press, industrial paper rack, guillotine paper cutter, printing and finishing presses for bookbinding, a photopolymer printing unit, and deckles, molds and felts for the papermakers. The number and variety of classes will grow because of the equipment that will soon be available to students.

We thank you for the energy, enthusiasm and resources you have given to this wonderful school. Important traditions are supported and through your efforts the expansion into new areas will allow a future of possibilities. We have always been a great place, but now we are even better, because of you.
