An excerpt from our Visitors Book

We love having schools visit The Papermill!

Our Papermakers thrive on showing students their creative space, how to make paper, marble and emboss. Students learn not only about paper but they are introduced (some for the first time) to people with intellectual disabilities in a safe and nurturing environment. Its about breaking down barriers all whilst engaging in fun activities.

What we Offer:

Fun with Paper

Duration: 1hr, Cost $5 per activity

We offer paper making, marbling and/or embossing as activities. Each activity costs $5pp. In our experience 2 activities per visit is optimal.

We recommend groups of a maximum of 30 pp (including adults) at any one time. 20pp we would divided into two groups, 30pp we would divide into 3 groups.

What you can expect from your Activity Hour Visit? 

Your visit will last approximately 1 hour. You will be welcomed by our Papermakers and given a brief introduction to The Papermill. Your group will then be divided into activity groups (2-3 groups depending on activities selected and the total number of visitors). As well as the chosen activities each group will be shown around the paper making studio, observe our paper makers in action and take the 'paper quiz'. A class visit is usually limited to a maximum of 30 students and accompanying adults.
