Papermakers and Artists Qld 'PAQ' (formerly known as Papermakers Qld) connects artists who share a passion for paper as an art medium, with an emphasis on the exchange of skills and encouraging experimentation. PAQ represents and furthers the interests of hand papermakers and paper artists in Queensland and Northern NSW, but also has members from around Australia.
Its not all about papermaking! Membership is open to anyone with an interest in working with paper in any form. We celebrate the artistry of paper including paper sculpture, artist books, paper clay, surface design, pulp painting, marbling, calligraphy, printmaking and, of course, papermaking using recycled paper and plant fibres, .
PAQ's Brisbane base is at the Wellers Hill Arts Hub at Tarragindi. Meetings are held every 2 months, either at the Wellers Hill Arts Hub or at other locations such as Wallace House on the Sunshine Coast.
PAQ is an active member of the Brisbane Visual Arts Community (BVAC).
