Join O, Paper Mill for an evening of generative activities and conversation with local page-fillers to help get your journal & sketchbook practice flowing. Feel free to bring your own blank book or choose from a selection of blank notebooks made using O, Papermill's recycled handmade paper. All necessary drawing and writing materials will be provided but please feel free to bring your favorites!

About O, Paper Mill

O, Paper Mill brings papermaking, bookbinding, and poetic journaling practices to Miami through an intensive fellowship program and a series of public workshops and demos.

The core of this project is a fellowship program that will give 4 fellows experience planning and executing public workshops, introducing them to the process of organizing a project for O, Miami while they learn high-level papermaking and bookbinding skills.

The public face of this project is a series of pop-up activations at O, Miami events and a round table workshop. The first two are papermaking demos building upon last year’s project with visitors making sheets of paper. The second is a workshop in which participants can learn how to bind their own book of handmade paper and take it with them. The final will be a round table of local poets and artists sharing prompts and activities to help participants confront the blank page and cultivate a writing / journaling / drawing practice in their handmade notebook.

Where’s the poem? Poetry will be featured in a set of professional custom stamps that can be pressed into the wet sheet of paper without ink to create a debossed transfer during the paper demos, then they can be stamped into the books with ink during the bookbinding workshop and the round table workshop.
