Shotwell Paper Mill is a hand paper mill located in the Mission district of San Francisco. We use traditional Western and Eastern papermaking techniques to produce sheets one at a time. Our paper is made from old rags, locally grown plant fibers, and/or other plant based textiles that are otherwise headed for the waste stream.
We work with communities, organizations, businesses, and individual artists, on projects that use handmade paper rich with story and meaning.
Our mill is equipped for full production in hand paper making, silk screen printing, letterpress, and book binding.
Pam DeLuco has lived in San Francisco since 1989. She has an extensive background in fibers and textiles and has been making things from scratch before it was the cool thing to do.
Drew Cameron is a second generation papermaker. He is trained in forestry and is a former US Army artilleryman. He’s taught thousands of people the ancient craft of paper across the country and abroad and he aims to teach thousands more in San Francisco.
Shotwell Paper Mill is fiscally sponsored by Burlington City Arts.
