Event Details

This is a rescheduled weekend class - come join us for a mid-week evening of papermaking! We'll start by finishing a batch of pulp in our Oracle beater, and pull a few sheets to get the hang of it. After that, we can explore pigments or inclusions - or keep pulling sheets of paper. Your call!


Wear closed-toe shoes with good soles - the floor can get slippery. We do have aprons, but you'll probably want to wear clothes that can get messy anyway.


Paper does need to dry overnight in our restraint system, so plan to come back to retrieve your dry sheets. If you can't make it back to the studio, bring a flat-rate envelope with postage so we can mail it to you.

The Boston Paper Collective

The Boston Paper Collective Seeks to bring together the Boston Book-arts community by providing paper artists, book binders, and hobbyists access to the equipment they need to create high quality works. Exhibitions, classes and demonstrations expose Greater Boston to the history, craft, and science behind the book arts.

The studio is located at 523 Medford street in Charlestown, MA. We have a Vandercook sp20, Lee S. Mcdonald beater, mixer, 20 ton press, and 2.5′ x 3′ drying system, along with a vacuum table, vats, and moulds. We offer workshops, custom classes, pulp beating, one on one instruction and studio rental.

How to get here:

We are located behind the Schaffts building in Sullivan Square. It’s a 7 minute walk from the Sullivan Square station on the orange line. The 92 or 93 bus go around the rotary to the schaffts building, but you need to request the bus stop by the schaffts building.

There are multiple bus lines that run from Cambridge, the 91 from central for example, if you are coming from Cambridge or Somerville, these are often faster than transferring to the orange line. From the Sullivan Square orange line mbta station walk around the rotary towards the schaffts building (it has a big glowing sign). Main street is the street in front of the schaffts building off of the rotary, take a right onto main. Walk one block and take a left at the fire station this is Medford street. We are two blocks down on Medford street, on the left.

If you are driving we are off of 93, head towards the Sullivan Square rotary, and take a right onto main street right before the schaffts building. Then a left at the next intersection onto Medford Street there will be a fire station on the corner. We are on the left about two blocks down. There is 2 hour parking in front of our building, the other side is residential, check the signs. We have half of the lot past the building on the left these are usually full before 3:30 on week days.

There will be a sign for the Stove Factory Gallery. Use the middle entrance with the double doors, we are on the second floor.
