(English: Paperwasp)

PapierWespe is a center for hand paper making and paper art. Our intention is to combine modern artistic, scientific, traditional and handcrafted methods.

Workshops form a core part of our operation. We also concentrate on the development of artistic concepts commissioned to us by clients and artists, in addition to making our own creations. We provide a high quality programme and bring in specially qualified instructors from abroad.

Based in the center of Vienna close to the southern raiwaystation. Equipped with a Hollander beater, press, pulpsprayer, drying box, moulds and more.

Accomodation: We can pick you up from the station as well as from the airport - Wien Schwechat. We are happy to book a room for you at a hotel nearby.

Free time: In your free time you can make use of the small paper library and browse through current periodicals. Furthermore the studio is ideally located, it is in walking distance from the Belvedere castle, the Hundertwasserhaus and the depot for modern art.
