School Groups


Paperhouse Studio welcomes school groups. For your next field trip, bring your students to a working art studio rich with creativity and expression. Learn about the processes behind papermaking, marbling, origami and more, while having fun in a safe, informative space. Paperhouse is housed in an arts and cultural hub–Artscape Youngplace. We partner with multiple arts organizations in the building, in particular, Koffler Gallery, and Critical Distance Centre for Curators, as well as mobile printmaking studio, Graven Feather Studio. We offer various classes and are happy to customize these to meet the individual needs of each school or class group.
