When the gavel fell at the end of last year's auction, nearly $9500 was raised! Special thanks again to the volunteers and staff who helped make it our best auction yet. And our heartfelt appreciation goes out to the generous friends who donated goods and services, and to everyone who took part in the spirited bidding.


Supported by generous donations from our friends, Hand Papermaking's annual auction provides the organization with an important source of revenue while generating enthusiasm and appreciation for the work of individual artists, for papermaking community supporters, and for the field in general.

Each year, bidders compete for donated items such as unique papers, distinctive artwork, valuable services, rare books, useful products, historic artifacts, etc. Most of the offerings are unavailable elsewhere and related in some way to hand papermaking.
