From the People at Hand Papermaking... We are excited this year to offer a new type of fundraising event: The Handmade Paper Wheel of Fortune. We asked contemporary papermakers and paper artists across the U.S. and around the world to donate 10-12 sheets of medium-sized handmade paper. And we received more than 60 pledges of papers of all sorts: Elegant Western-style papers, beautiful Japanese, Thai, and other traditional papers of Asia, experimental papers made from rare and unusual natural fibers, dyed and colored papers, hand-decorated papers, and so much more! And you can Spin the Handmade Paper Wheel of Fortune to win a unique and amazing batch of papers!
Just go to the Wheel of Fortune page on our website (or click the button directly below) and purchase your chance to win! Every purchase wins an amazing surprise batch of handmade paper. But don’t hesitate! Once we have sold as many Wheel of Fortune tickets as we have donations, the event will end. (The Wheel of Fortune drawing will take place on July 17, and ALL ticket-buyers will be matched to a papermaker.) Share photos of your handmade papers on Instagram! Tag @handpapermaking and use #paperwof and we can feature your image in our posts and Stories.
