Open Sessions – designed as a casual setting in which the setup has been done by Paperhouse staff. While support is provided they are not a replacement for the more formalized classes and workshops. Instead they are meant to act as an opportunity to play using some of the techniques you learned in a previous class or as a taster to see if you would like to take a formal class. Some assistance will be provided but participants will be expected to work independently for the majority of the class. Materials are included in the price.

All open sessions are 3 hours each.

PICK UP / STORAGE OF WORK

Paperhouse is un-able to indefinitely store any work made in the classes due to limited space and a full educational programme that rotates three times a year. All participants work will be kept in the studio for up to 3 weeks, available for students to come pick up their work during public hours or by appointment. After this period Paperhouse will recycle and/or put the work in their archives for educational and/or promotional purposes. Participants are responsible of picking up their work within the set time frame and Paperhouse is not responsible for any loss of work pass the 3 week pick up period.
