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.
