Month: March 2015

this week has been all about paper as I embarked on Rachel* Hazell’s marvellous e.course
Paperlove:
keeping my hand in, and exploring with other creatives is a good way  to feed the creative well,
& continue my amateur development….

like any creative and inspiring course the effects commenced
as soon as I registered, & I was off, preparing. . .
a materials box, collecting papers, starting a notebook –
plus Rachel also provided pre-course exercises, my kind of work!

* known as the travelling bookbinder, Rachel embodies all that phrase evokes, working with groups in Venice, Edinburgh and far away isles….she has a newsletter too9 ?pre course pics
