Greenwerk Paper Studio in Budapest focuses on an experimental design process. The studio produces paper from surplus material while creating eco-friendly products that are both aesthetically pleasing and practical. This is a place where an idea begins as a basic sketch and is converted into samples and working prototypes. In many cases the products are so skillfully transformed that their origins are not recognizable. The founders of the Studio are Csenge Győrbíró and Lili Labus, who are both textile designers and innovators who graduated from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, Hungary.
I love it when inspiration strikes! I’ve had this dish drying rack in a box for 3+ years, finally opened it and thought about what I could use it for. Voila! The perfect studio tape rack. Do you have this much tape? Painter’s tape, artist’s tape, double-side tapes, washi tape, duct tape, strapping tape, and masking tape!
Yu Tielin is a Chinese high school student who won Apple’s 2020 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC20) Swift Student Challenge this year. She developed a design in which the players get to explore paper cutting!
Many incarcerated people have spent years figuring out what to do with their time in isolation. Not the same, but a bit like how some of us are feeling during COVID-19. Some discover faith, others read and educate themselves, and then there are those who become artists. The University of Michigan hosts an Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners.
I’ve started something called The Paper Advisor that you might be interested in. It’s a place where you can discover my most popular papermaking and papercraft resources – including information about tools and supplies, how-to videos, and paper tips – all in one place! And best of all, it’s free!
