category: Paper   

In 2002, after accidentally leaving a book out in the rain, Hannah Lobley developed the award-winning Paperwork. She couldn’t bear to throw away her ruined and all-time favourite book (Lord of the Rings) and decided to see if she could reuse it even though she couldn’t read it again. Hannah had previously specialised in wood […]

Joanna Caskie

category: Paper   

region: Scotland   

I am a mixed media artist mainly working with paper to create handmade books, collage and occasionally sculpture. I use a variety of papers, sometimes new and sometimes with a history and enjoy exploring the qualities of my materials to create unique objects. Some of these pieces are made of paper alone and some are given details and dimension with threads, paints and inks. I am drawn to working with paper because of its ability to appear fragile yet be incredibly strong and because of its amazing textural qualities. Much of my work is inspired by the natural shapes and forms I see in my rural, coastal landscape.

Using old and recycled materials I try to capture the detail and beauty found in nature. My work is influenced by plants, insects and found objects which I recreate in paper and arrange carefully into collections and dioramas. I like to evoke the sense of nostalgia and curiosity I get from studying nature and creating the items […]

Louise McLaren

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: Scotland   

I create delicate, intricately patterned images filled with romantic, uplifting and inspiring sentiments and use these to make extra special, handcrafted gifts to give to your nearest and dearest! Each design begins life as a pencil drawing which I cut by hand, with a scalpel. This process fills each image with character and idiosyncrasies that cannot be digitally replicated. I also produce screen prints in limited edition runs.

Megan Stallworthy – Perfect Bindings

category: Bookbinding   Leather   Paper   

region: South West   

I make sketchbooks, notebooks, journals, visitors books and albums, with handmade, watercolour and pattern papers, leather, vellum and linen. Each book is bound by hand in my studio in Somerset, using traditional bookbinding techniques and archival materials. I like simplicity of form and design combined with the tactile beauty of natural materials, and aim to make books that are calm and subtle, activated by areas of colour, pattern or texture. As well as making books for sale and to commission, I run workshops in traditional and contemporary book forms at arts centres and book festivals.

Mountain & Molehill

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: London   

I source Victorian and Edwardian animal etchings which I edit and collage to create contemporary designs.   Ideas often come from my anthropomorphic take in the images I find in the old encyclopaedias I collect.

Once the design is in place I turn it into prints and lampshades with a difference. All of my designs are produced with a story in mind and a desire to raise a smile from a moment of nostalgia and recognition. The mix of Victorian illustrations with the stylish monochrome of the designs means that they are equally suited to a classic home or a modern flat making them an excellent choice for most tastes.  My products range from £25 to £125.
