The annual five week online paper adventure begins on the 15th June – here are five reasons to sign up for PaperLove now!
One: The pure satisfaction of making.
Give your mind the opportunity to quieten as your hands fold and stitch, cut and glue. A daily focus on physical crafting. Concentrate on hand/eye coordination and forget what else is going on for a while. Learning is a positive distraction – unfold possibilities.
Two: Your paper stash.
All those art supplies you’ve been saving, the rolls of special wrap, the stationery collection, the charity shop finds, the thick sheets of watercolour you’ve kept safe, the travel tickets, luggage labels and maps – their time has come. We are the paper appreciation people! Ephemera heaven.
Link up with other PaperLovers who get excited about the same things as you. Since we can’t travel at the moment, here’s a way to compare notes with your tribe. The support and encouragement of our private community group is immensely reassuring. We’re not alone. And that notebook is gorgeous.
Four: Calm space.
A place for imagining, reflecting and self expression. Sit and think. Walk and look. Read and share. Let yourself be guided through over twenty projects and exercises, at your own pace. Get absorbed doing what you love.
Five: Work with me!
The Travelling Bookbinder is in lockdown, so it’s not possible to meet up for workshops at the moment. This is the next best thing. During the weekly film, you’ll feel like I’m in the room with you, sharing my suitcase of paper delights. Join me for five weeks of passionate creativity with the most versatile of materials.
The PaperLove e-course begins on 15th June. Gather your papers, clear a space at the table and hang that ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door… Our online classroom opens on Friday – see you there!
