About Us

Aims to bring people of all backgrounds and abilities together through creating handmade paper from recycled materials, including denim jeans and locally harvested plant fibres.

Paper People

We love the maleable nature of paper – from robust to translucent – the unexpected revelation of emotion in a seemingly plain material. But it is people that matters more than paper. Paperworks Inc desires a richer social experience for everyone! 

We aim to bring people of all backgrounds and abilities together through creating handmade paper from recycled materials, including denim jeans and locally harvested plant fibres.

Vision:

Social inclusion through community art

Mission:

Bringing people together through recycling, hand print- and papermaking
