We train intellectually challenged and disabled persons in the art of papermaking. We hand make a wide range of paper products including cards, wedding invitations, stationery sets and various pieces of art. All our paper is made from recycled paper and natural fibres. Tours and workshops are available on request. See our website for details.

I ordered some specialty handmade papers online. They arrived within days, beautifully packaged in a cute paper bag with hand drawings on it. Gorgeous idea! They are just what I was looking for.

Thank you so much for your feedback! The Papermakers take great pride in decorating our 'shop' bags and like every piece of paper created, every bag is also unique!

Very nice place where people with a disability participate in Art projects. This gives those people the chance to 'really work' and teaches them a lot of basic skills. The place is full of creativity and is managed by great people! Worth a visit!

We took our Junior Syndicate to the Paper Mill as our topic for term 2 was about Recycling & Reusing. They are defiantly Masters of Paper Making. Our children and adults learnt so much and where made to feel so welcome. Thanks Paper Mill
