For Current Members Only!
Want an inexpensive way to practice your sheet forming skills in the studio? Want to meet other papermakers and see what they are working on? Then let’s get pulpy! Papermaking “Happy Hour” is an open studio session where pulp, moulds and deckles, and the press are prepared and waiting to be put to use. A Papermaking Associate will be available to monitor and answer questions. Recent papermaking experience and RSVP are required.
Happy Hours are not suitable for making large sheets, prepping your own pulp, or for one-on-one instruction. For one-on-one instruction, please visit our lessons page. Happy Hour registrations close at noon the day of the session. For last minute openings/accommodations, please call: 301-608-9101. No walk-ins will be accepted.
Please Note (As of December 1, 2021):
Pyramid values the health and wellbeing of our artists, teachers, students, staff, and visitors. At this time, we are choosing to remain more conservative than many local ordinances and require mask wearing in all public spaces in the building.
Taking an in-person class at Pyramid has potential for close physical contact between the students and teachers. As part of our commitment to providing a safe work environment and reducing the potential exposure or transmission of Covid-19, we request that on the first day of class you provide either proof of vaccination or proof of recent negative Covid-19 test results (within 72 hrs). If you are unable to provide these documents, please contact the front desk for a health screening questionnaire. Pyramid will offer a full refund to anyone at any time if they feel unwell or that they may put others at risk of exposure.
Please contact us with any additional questions or concerns.
