Paperhouse Studio is located in Artscape Youngplace , Toronto’s new vibrant community creativity hub in the heart of West Queen West, where exciting new projects are being brought to life every day in one of its sunny and beautiful studios.
Built in 1914, the building was a public school owned by Toronto District School Board (TDSB). It was shut down in 2000 and sat empty until 2006, when TDSB hired nonprofit organization, Artscape, to look into repurposing the building into a community cultural hub. After a multimillion-dollar renovation, the building was reopened in November 2013. Artscape Youngplace exists to create a safe, accessible and inspiring space for artists to come together and share their passion for the arts and culture.
Paperhouse Studio is proud to be a part of this community and we believe it is a perfect setting for our dreams to bring paper into the hands of many people across disciplines.
Our doors are open to the public so that people of all ages can watch and participate as we bring unique installations, sculpture, books and colourful paper into life.
