On Paper Talk:
Rachel Hazell is also my guest on Paper Talk this month. Have a listen as we discuss how she spends her time between Edinborough and the isle of Iona in Scotland. Rachel’s website is The Travelling Bookbinder, and you’ll soon hear why that is as we discuss how she teaches five or so workshops in cities around the world (Venice, Iona, Paris anyone)? These sound absolutely delightful – I’ve seen photos of some of the book and paper shops she frequents. Rachel is perhaps the first book artist to offer an online class – you’ll hear about her two popular courses: Paper Love and Book Love as we chat about some of the advantages of taking an online class. And we talk about Rachel’s brand new book: Bound: 15 Beautiful Bookbinding Projects. Enjoy our conversation!
