I had a great time getting my hands on the latest iteration of Papermaking Museum at the Papermaking Salon in downtown Las Vegas.
The collection is amazing, to say the least.
I was fortunate enough to walk around the building and see the entire collection, which was full of gorgeous papermaking objects that were all hand-picked by the owner.
Among the more unique pieces were the original handmade papercraft of the first American woman to become a painter (she’s been working as a professional artist since the 1960s).
In addition, I saw a papercraft model of a woman who’s made her mark in the world of painting and sculpture, but whose work has not yet been seen by the public.
Other pieces from the museum were a giant wooden model of an old wooden boat with a large, modern-day sign that reads “My Boat”, and a massive piece of a wooden boat that was built by the man who would be the father of the modern day sea captain.
All in all, the Papermakers collection is truly astounding.
And I couldn’t be more proud of my fellow attendees who helped me pick my favorites!
