The Mobile Mill is an automobile outfitted with portable machinery to enable “pop-up” hand papermaking production, moving the making experience to, well, anywhere.
With a focus on experiential learning and community outreach, The Mobile Mill is a space for physical, social, and artistic interaction — an alternative art-making space where new learners, practicing artists and potential collaborators can learn about paper and how to make paper. The Mobile Mill demonstrates ecological awareness through art education, which teaches participants how to repurpose waste.
At large, a studio-on-wheels has great potential to generate a type of interaction with community that considers a larger human ecology. As a moving-space able to interact between edges, The Mobile Mill considers art-making, in this case the making of handmade paper, as a way to engage in a variety of communities and dialogues.

The even is free and open to the public.
