At the site that gave the world mechanised paper in 1803 we still make paper and your students can try their hand at handmade sheets and see a Fourdrinier papermaking machine in action.  This same machine is used by practising machine men from around the country who are completing NVQs. 

Papermaking is fascinating and we can cover fibre, sources and origins of materials, methods, equipment, paper and board, stocks, sizes, recycling and the ecological footprint. We endeavour to make our sessions active and interesting.  We are happy to discuss the delivery of your session and how we may best help you. 

A visit typically includes an introductory presentation, hand papermaking and a mill tour but we can add length and depth to all we do.
