For grades: For all grades and ages. Pre-School to Master of Science Undergraduates.
Requirements for live visit: My only requirement when demonstrating papermaking is a few gallons of water, but my set-up is such that the papermaking can even be done inside with a minimum of clean-up. All equipment breakdown and only requires approximately a 5' x 8' space. E
Fees for live visit: The cost of a program is based on the number of participants and the type of programs. Program specifics such as group size and any variations can be discussed to design programs to.

Educational Hands-on Demonstrator - Living History Reenactor »
Richard's teaching is stimulating, and his kindness and wit encourages student involvement. --- John Krill (Senior Conservator Paper-Winterthur Museum)
In our effort to bring to life the historical past and reflect on the present, we have designed a mobile, hands-on living history program, in which we use the tools of the past to help others understand the problems we now face in the 21st century.
Our emphasis on environmental issues such as the quiet fire syndrome provides a highly informative program on the decay and misuse of paper in our society, along with the unyielding efforts of recycling and the long- term effects of chemicals in our paper and printing processes.
All programs can be performed without hands-on participation - performed as separate or in any combination as short vignettes; dramatizations reenactments and historical portrayals of any characters tracing the history of both papermaking and printing.
We are currently part of numerous school programs both historical and educational to include: Atwater Kent Museum, Winterthur Museum, Burnside Museum, Franklin Institute, Mercer Museum, Elfreth's Alley Association, Philadelphia Welcome America, Pennsylvania Chesapeake Bay Commission, Pennsylvania Museum Commission, Washington Crossing, Ephrata Cloister, Goshen Oppen Historical Society, and numerous other historical associations along with schools and educational institutions from pre-school to Master of Science Undergraduates.
We are also juried member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Crafters, and an approved Artist In Residency Program with Pennsylvania State Counsil of the Arts in Education and Delaware Division of the Art both of which can assist your organization in planning and funding through partnership grants for either short or long term residency programs.
