Paper Birches

“Paper Birches,” our Guild book arts supply program, is now open in Suite 301 at The Folk School Fairbanks, 2861 Beverley Lane, Fairbanks, AK 99709. Supplies may be purchased at Open Book events, meetings, and workshops held at The Folk School. You may also contact any Guild Board member to make an appointment to meet at the studio. We feature papers from several sources. Our current inventory includes Arches text wove, Shizen and Khadi papers. The fabulous BFK Rives paper is on the way! Also on hand is book board, MacTac and Jade 403 PVA adhesives, and waxed linen thread, which we are now able to provide by the spool or by the yard. Be thinking of materials or supplies that you’d like to have available to you– by buying together we can take advantage of bulk discounts and save on shipping. This makes it possible to spend more on beautiful papers!
