  • we stopped here when we were showing some friends around town. We walked in and discovered we could take a short class to learn how to make paper! It was so much fun and the presenter of the class made this a 5 star experience. She is super passionate and knowledgeable and has a wonderful personality. So fun to make a sheet of paper to take home!
  • A friend and I came here to explore randomly on a Saturday. We ended up arriving 30 minutes before a Paper Making class started. We didn't plan to do a class but I'm so glad we did! Claudia ran the class. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and personable. The Center is interactive and there was a Glow in the Dark room you can explore with 3D glasses. Both staff members were fantastic. We had so much fun here! (We're both in our 30's 😄)
