Paper Art & Design is a gallery, shop and workshop for art and objects made out of paper. It is situated in what was formerly Vroom Modemagazijn established on Weimarstraat in 1936 and is now the new centre for art and culture in The Hague.
It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
Paper Art & Design offers a platform for expositions and sales to national and international artists working with paper or cardboard. The exposition room consists of large display windows directly facing the street and the front part of the large space.
Lately we have seen many developments regarding paper art and design. An increasing number of artists and designers are using the unique characteristics of paper; and Paper Art & Design strives to propagate the properties and versatility of paper.
Coming soon: exhibition “See, Walk and admire!” with paper and cardboard shoes. See events.
Loes Schepens’s studio is situated behind the gallery. Loes works with paper and graphic art. You can find her work in the gallery and on her website www.loesschepens.nl.
The age-old craft of manufacturing paper, with its large diversity of raw materials and techniques, is experiencing a revival. Workshops on how to make paper with vegetable fibres or according to eastern techniques are given on a irregular basis. Future workshops have been planned on applications of paper, such as book-binding, relief printing on a hand press and paper implements design.

In addition to the works of art in the gallery, special paper and cardboard objects are for sale in the shop, such as water-resistant bags, accessories, lamps and other interior objects.
