Our next adult workshop

We had a fantastic evening with Andy Singleton making paper birds on 11th November. 

Paper birds made with Andy Singleton's instruction - a fun evening!

Next month, we will still be working with paper to try bookbinding, with Timid Elk.

Timid Elk trained in ceramics but found more joy in creating the paper test pieces - and so now mostly works with paper.  Her work includes exquisitely intricate shaped paper pieces, and she has designed a workshop for us with her trademark use of old Ordinance Survey Maps.

Some of you may have seen a piece of Timid Elk work on display in Wakefield before - including the gorgeous lamp that was on display outside the museum for the 2014 Lit Fest.

This lamp was made by Timid Elk

Of course, in a day's workshop, we can't expect to be able to create something like this! 

To get a taste of the techniques, we are running a day's workshop on Saturday 12th December to create a hand-bound book.
