LOWER RICHARD'S MILL
Petit Futé's opinion on LOWER RICHARD'S MILL
The mill was founded at the end of the 14th century and its activity has stopped only from 1938 to 1942, date on which the Association La Feuille Blanche has made it revive. The visitor is immersed in the life of the master papermakers and sees the rags transforming into white sheet under his eyes. No step is forgotten: sorting and cutting of old fabrics, transformation into cellulose fiber by using mallets, deposit in the tank, works (removing water from the paper pulp with form), paper coating (positioning on the felt), pressing, lifting, spreading that takes place in vast floors of the mill. Also, a museum that was the former room of sorting and which was the apartment of papermaker - common room and bedroom. A room is devoted to the history of paper, from its birth in China to its introduction in France and in particular in Ambert, which was very early in the matter. The golden age of the Ambert paper mill is the 18th century. An animation for all ages is proposed on the same site - in school periods - where a discovery workshop offers an introduction to make your own sheet of paper.
