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.

From 29 september 2018 until the 5th of january 2019 the Virtual Shoe Museum and Paper Art & Design organise an unique exhibition about paper shoes.

See, walk and admire!

The exhibition is opened by Liza Snook (director VSM) and shoe designer Heleen Overbeek.

Studio

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.

Shop

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.

We invite you to visit us whenever you are looking for an inspiring gift, or if you would like to have something personal made, for example a custom-made object, a unique work of art, or a guestbook for a special occasion.
