Paper is a commodity that we barely give thought to, yet we use it every day. Simple to make in its most basic form, but varied and versatile thanks to the skill and science that has been applied to papermaking. Papermaking is an epic story of more than 2000 fascinating years. The tales of the inventors, the inventions, the impact on lives in the local area and the surprising interconnections make it worthy of a historical drama. The Trust sets out to educate and share this knowledge; the remarkable story of paper past, present and still unfolding!
