Our Mission at Wooden Deckle
At Wooden Deckle our mission is to get you up and running at making paper - making great things, while doing some good.
Our kits enable you to recycle paper to make handmade paper in a variety of sizes, for a variety of great purposes.
We specialize in small and sturdy mold and deckles for practical everyday paper making. By shredding used printer paper, wrapping paper, sheet music, greeting cards, etc., and processing them in a kitchen blender, new life is given to what was once destined to be thrown away.
Finding a second use for something instead of throwing it away is good for our earth, and honors the One who made it.
How did we get here?
Owner Elizabeth W began making paper in 2003 as a surface for botanical art. Inquiries came from people who wanted handmade paper for their own creative endeavors. So, a simple, practical papermaking kit came about.
- Wooden Deckle LLC is located in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin.
- The frames for our mold and deckles are handcrafted in the U.S.A.
- We get a little help from our friends... our boxes are folded and the labels for our paper making kits are applied by hardworking individuals at VIP Services.
- We assist educators/teachers interested in teaching others to make paper by recycling paper.
- Want to take a paper making class in Wisconsin?
