The Sunday Paper #437
November 27, 2022
We’re wrapping up the second year of monthly projects in The Paper Year, and I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed this adventure and seeing how this amazing group responds to the monthly projects and techniques. I’ll be kicking off registration for year three on December 15th with a Winter Solstice Zoom Workshop. Sign up to make this Cube Light with me and learn a bit about my membership program. Let’s illuminate our spirits and our homes! (The title of this blog post is part of a poem by Rumi – I’ll share the whole poem at the workshop).
The Craft Industry Alliance put together this Holiday Gift Guide featuring products and offerings from their members. Support the creative economy and make this holiday season truly memorable when you give handmade. You can also join the group – it is a fantastic resource for those running craft businesses – read more about the Craft Industry Alliance and join here (there’s currently a 25% sale on membership, and full disclosure: I’m a member).
Check out the paper cut portraits of Karl Johnson. In less than two minutes, he trims delicate portraits of children sitting in profile in front of him.
This is a touching project that I’ve written about before. It is becoming all too poignant. Soul Boxes fold gun-violence grief into origami boxes.
This is an incredible pop-up book based on Euclid’s Geometry by Sjoerd Hofstra.
- Have you had a chance to listen to my interview with Susan Ruptash on Paper Talk?
- Last year I started a new tradition – creating a list of my favorite paper resources for 2021. For 2022, I’d love to include your recommendations as well. Tell me about them here.
In the Studio
Madeline Good is finishing up her internship here, and we’ve done so much over the past month. One thing I’m particularly delighted about are our sample books. We beat one pulp each week and a pulled a paper swatch from the beater every 15 minutes to see how the fibers change throughout the beating process.
|Featured this week in my Studio shop:
The Art of Papercraft, Papermaking with Garden Plants & Common Weeds, Water Paper Time, a film download, and The Papermaker’s Companion.
