Bring your own books to life by signing up to BookLove with Rachel Hazell in January.
Let this be a gift to yourself – your first passion project of 2019. You’ll choose the paper, the content, the words and design. Grow your repertoire of techniques as BookLove unfolds over two full weeks and continue to make bookart throughout the year. Rachel Hazell’s twenty years of teaching experience and enthusiasm provides a wealth of exercises and instruction so you can dive in to fresh ideas and new ways of working.
Book before the 14th of January using the code NEWIDEAS and receive a 10% discount on the course price.


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!

As seen on Creative Boom, Canadian artist Andrew Ooi cuts, creases, paints, folds and fits hundreds to thousands of paper pieces individually by hand to create artworks that inspire “notions of time, meaning, and meaning over time”.
