Happenings at the Carriage House
| The first floor of the Carriage House
is an active papermaking studio. Its main focus is on the technology of hand
papermaking, emphasizing the making of paper for specific purposes,
including paper as the basis of art forms.
The second floor of the Carriage House contains the museum display, featuring an exhibition of rare books dealing with historical papermaking, handmade papers that represent nearly every part of the world, and tools and equipment that have been used for making paper over the centuries.
A complete data base of the nearly 3,000 items in the collection has now been completed, with new items constantly added. The museum has also added 1,000 sq. ft. of storage space that we call "accessible storage", enabling visitors to access particular parts of the collection.
