After five years of operation, I have decided it is time for me to close this chapter. My studies have been affording me great opportunities and I am finding less and less time to be in the mill. This was a tough decision to make but it is the right one. This does not mean I will never make paper again! I will! However, the focus will be on personal projects and less business-oriented.

I wanted to take the time to thank all of you for the tremendous love and support you have shared with me throughout these years. You've all witnessed it grow from scrappy ambition to one that became dignified and professional. Although it did not reach the masses in the way that I had hoped, it reached you and that means the world to me. 

On that note, I have two other announcements:

July 15-21, 2018 – The class will explore the basics of papermaking through nature. We’ll work with a variety of plant fibers to form sheets as well use for inclusions and natural dyes. I’ll introduce basic methods, tools, equipment, and sizing techniques while allowing plenty of time to experiment. We will have a chance to harvest local plants so be sure to pack your field guides! The goal is to create a portfolio with nature’s provisions and challenge ourselves to see the potential in our own backyards.

This will be my last workshop! Wells College is located in the Finger Lakes region and is absolutely beautiful in the summer. This is a week-long event but not only will you make wonderful, interesting paper, you will also get to hike the area, enjoy local sites, with room & board options. Come join me in celebrating the book arts and send Petrichorpaper out in style! I would love to end this journey with a final workshop celebration! Low to no enrollment means cancellation. Let’s make this workshop happen! 

Information & Registration

Asides from this wonderful opportunity, I will be taking time off to focus on my studies. The Shop will still be open but custom orders and regular posts will not be available. Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who came out to support us local artists at the Last Minute Panic Sale at the Western New York Book Arts Center! It was a tremendous success which will end 2017 on a high note. I could not continue to do what I love without your support!

I would like to extend my gratitude by giving the gift of 50% off everything in the shop until New Year's Day 2018. How does that sound??! Yes, this includes EVERYTHING (memberships, supplies, paper, prints, etc.)! The coupon code is HOUSEKEEPING2017 and is good from today until December 31st at midnight. 

Thank you all and happy holidays!

 

12 DAYS OF SAVINGS!

It's that time of year again and as usual I am kicking off 12 days of sales (24 Nov - 5 Dec) followed by my 12 days of goals for the new year later next month. Below will be a list of coupon codes for each sale day. I tried to make it as easy as possible but Squarespace does not allow for automatic discounts without a plan upgrade (maybe that will be one of my goals for next year?!). I will also post an individual reminder for each code that day so you don't have to sift through expired codes. Phew, that was exhausting. So here you go!

New prints in the shop! Five in fact. A little bit of Kurt Vonnegut, a little bit of Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator, and even a little bit of humanity work with "Paper Mills Not Puppy Mills" (50% of proceeds will go to local animal shelter). Head on over to the shop to see all the new work! Remember, they're all limited editions so once they're gone, they're gone!

You may have noticed my new section "Supplies" and if you haven't, check it out! I have begun downsizing my studio (no, I'm not closing!) to focus more on personal production. With that said I wanted to make the extra supplies available for those interested. The inventory list is not yet complete but should be by the end of September. If you are currently looking for something at the moment and it's not listed feel free to contact me. : )

...

Lastly, the Fall workshop schedule (WNYBAC) has been released and I will be teaching a Papermaking with Plants workshop on September 30th (Sat) from 11-2pm. 

New prints in the shop just in time for Saturday's Wayzgoose at the Western New York Book Arts Center! Swing by and check us out or just go ahead and treat yourself to a print right now. I won't tell...

Shop updates, birthday coupon, brief custom hiatus

New paper in stock: Bowerbird (above), Marsh, & Turq-ish. Visit shop to learn more.

...

Today is my 29th birthday and I would like to celebrate with you all by giving you 29% off your whole order. Only good for June 22nd (today!). Coupon code = 29OFF22

...

I would also like to take this moment to announce that I am taking a brief hiatus from custom orders until early August. I need to take this time to focus on my Master's work, teaching, and house-building. I appreciate your patience and understanding. : )

Until then...

Happy Solstice!
