Through PAPER, makers, creators and artists can access the things that really make a difference to them, like affordable studios, commission-free exhibition space and a high-quality, low-cost printing service.

Our services and events are aimed at helping talented individuals, like you, to take a project or artistic talent and turn it into a source of income, whilst teaching enterprising skills.

We believe that everyone should be given the chance to realise his or her aspirations, so use our website as a tool to unlocking your potential!

Our events at PAPER offer an exciting insight into our company ethos, as well as providing the chance to meet and talk to the hard-working and talented individuals working behind the scenes.

Past events have included Take pART; a week of free and lively workshops, which aimed to highlight the wealth of creative opportunities available as part of PAPER Arts’ training facilities, and PAPER Clips; a showcase of short films and videos produced by local artists.

Our most recent event, a Free Art Weekender, celebrated a year of delivering essential services to young and emerging creatives right in the heart of Bristol. The event was comprised of outdoor life drawing, a free-art giveaway, studio tours and live music! Catch up on it, here.

Place your order with us and we can also scan your artwork, help you to choose the paper size and type, and print it to a professional finish. You can also get it ‘back and wrapped’ so that’s it ready for sale.

Plus, we house a bespoke framing service, providing an assorted collection of moulds and designs to choose from, providing for the perfect finishing touch!
