Cave Paper 25th Anniversary

To celebrate and promote the traditional craft of handmade paper and its use as a creative and collaborative medium in numerous artistic genres, Cave Paper will collaborate with five nationally and internationally renowned artists and artisans over the next four years.

The project will culminate with public lectures, an internship program, public workshops, and public exhibitions meant to expose the public to this artistic craft. The first invited artist is Lu Jingren from Beijing China. Cave Paper's second collaboration is between Amanda Degener, Bridget O'Malley, and Jan Owen. Discussions have included the desire to edition a circular book which beautifully presents original text about the advantage/necessity of opposites. Indigo and Persimmon dyed on handmade Flax paper in Yin/Yang shapes which spontaneously overlap.

About Cave

Today, the feel of Cave Paper still reflects its name. We make paper by hand from raw fiber.  We boil walnuts for dye, and mix deep vats of indigo. Our process results in a robust, and archival paper of unparalleled durability.

Cave’s reputation is equally lasting. Over 100 interns have been ushered through the immersive studio experience at Cave. The program teaches emerging craftspeople of all ages to keep hand-papermaking alive.

We work with artists worldwide, bringing technical know-how to numerous projects. As a result, projects that use Cave Paper are housed everywhere from contemporary art museums to the Library of Congress.

Our mission is to bring attention to detail and high quality to each sheet of paper that leaves our studio. We honor traditional craft while supporting innovation. Cave puts your creative origin story down on paper.
