Our studio can become your office for the afternoon during Open Studio hours here at The Paper + Craft Pantry.

We've opened up our doors to invite you to join us in a collaborative setting to get work done before each weekend. Every week, we host Open Studio for our community here in Austin.

What is Open Studio?
Open Studio is a donation (optional, but encouraged) based co-working time and space for small business owners who work from home, freelancers who work from coffee shops, and even for folks who just want a time to network with other go-getters.

When is Open Studio?
On Fridays, March 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st from noon to 5pm. Come and go as you please! 

Where do my donations go?
We partner up with local non-profits every quarter to give back to the community. 100% of donations received during our Friday Open Studio will go directly toward that charity! This quarter we'll be giving back to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas.

What can I bring in to work on?
Whatever you are working on! Your lap top to knock out emails, edit photos, draft a blog post, read a book you're reading, a knitting project you are working on, painting a new design for your stationery brand... the sky is literally the limit :)

So come on by and work while supporting a great, local non-profit. We hope to see you!

The Paper Wall Project


Paper Craft Pantry Paper Wall Art Installation Project Austin

In the spirit of #SXSW taking over Austin, we decided to up the ante and invite a few of our favorite designer friends to help us create an instagram-worthy wall in our studio! 

So, don't be shy! Stop by the studio before the end of the month to get a chance to check out our very first art installation in person, and snap a few pics. Feel free to tag #thepaperwallproject for a chance to be featured on our Instagram.

Here's a little more on the artists behind The Paper Wall Project (from left to right):

Chelsea Laine Francis (@ohhhchelsea)

Chelsea is Creative Director at The Paper + Craft Pantry, as well as owner of Chelsea Laine Francis photography + creative. She moved to Austin, TX two years ago, hit the ground running, and hasn't stopped since. She's an extrovert through and through and loves meeting new people at coffee shops, but she also loves working from home alone while watching cheesy sitcoms + Shondaland shows. When she isn't furiously responding to emails (she's an inbox zero kinda gal!) she's fulfilling her childhood dream of being a photographer + getting to meet people from all over the United States. 

Denise Roberts (@withlovefromding)

One of the last "unicorns" left in Austin — she's a born and raised Austinite. Staging and Interiors is what she wants to do when she grows up (check out her awesome business/online store, Love Ding) and she tries to work toward and keep at her goals on a daily basis. She only writes on unlined paper and she drinks mimosas at night.

Pei Sim (@pspapershoppe)

In addition to being the founder and owner of The Paper + Craft Pantry, Pei is a self-declared paper hoarder and stationery aficionado since '94. Pei has always had a bit of a paper problem. She still uses a paper planner and usually has about 7 notebooks at any given time within arms reach. Besides paper, Pei is also really passionate about french fries.

Rachel Giberson (@rachelfromaustin)

A big thing of all things creative, she believes that making things is good for the soul. She spends most of her time adventuring with her two rad little boys and cool husband, but also finds time to build custom art installations. She loves doo-wop music and Alfred Hitchcock — and realizes that this makes her sound like a grandma.

OCTOBER OPEN STUDIO

Our studio can become your office for the afternoon during Open Studio hours here at The Paper + Craft Pantry.

We've opened up our doors to invite you to join us in a collaborative setting to get work done before each weekend. Every week, we host Open Studio for our community here in Austin.

What is Open Studio?
Open Studio is a donation (optional, but encouraged) based co-working time and space for small business owners who work from home, freelancers who work from coffee shops, and even for folks who just want a time to network with other go-getters.

When is Open Studio?
On Fridays, October 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th from noon to 5pm. Come and go as you please!

Where do my donations go?
We partner up with local non-profits every quarter to give back to the community. 100% of donations received during our Friday Open Studio hours this month will go directly to Austin's Boys & Girls Club!

What can I bring in to work on?
Whatever you are working on! Your lap top to knock out emails, edit photos, draft a blog post, read a book you're reading, a knitting project you are working on, painting a new design for your stationery brand... the sky is literally the limit :)

So come on by and work while supporting a great, local non-profit. We hope to see you!

September: #penpalparty

septemberpenpalparty16

Here at The Paper + Craft Pantry, we are just as passionate about snail mail as we are about our community.

We are so excited to announce the launch of our new studio series, #penpalparty, which we hope will become a monthly snail mail writing get-together that promotes the art of sending mail and creates awareness of the many great stationery designers there are in the world.

Join us in our studio for this complimentary stationery mixer on Thursday, September 29th from 6pm-7pm where you'll get to write some snail mail on adorable cards and send someone some happy mail.

 Chipper Things has graciously sponsored our September #penpalparty and we couldn't feel more special to have such amazing cards from a local designer!

We'll provide everything you need minus the stamp- we have limited seats available and just require an in-person RSVP in our studio!
