A little seasonal update for you! First up – hello 2017! 2016 was the year of the exhibition for me, with shows in London and Yorkshire (there’ll be a review of the year to follow); it looks like 2017 will be the year of the workshop, as I have a few planned already.
The gifting year is well and truly underway, with lots of interest in my latest Valentine’s designs. I’ve been busy creating some new pieces including my sweet retro typewriter card, which can be personalised with a couple’s names. Featuring the wording “A true love story never ends”, and based on an original hand-drawn, hand-cut papercut, these cards are available in my Etsy shop. They’re like a little love letter, and great for all lovey-dovey occasions, from Valentine’s to engagements and weddings – or simply just to send someone a message (customers can personalise the quote section too!). It’s just one of a number of perfectly romantic cards available in my online store now.
Just a little reminder that my order books are currently open and I’m accepting commissions for a wide range of pieces; from papercuts featuring special landscapes (after the success of my Whitby and Malham Cove pieces last year!) or buildings (like my York Minster piece created in December 2016), to my more widely-known family trees and filled letter cuts. You can order these via my Etsy shop or directly from me via the contact page on my website.
March and November will see me host workshops at Artison near Masham in Yorkshire. With a hearty lunch, refreshments and cake provided, I’ll be tutoring participants in the fine art of papercutting for pleasure. Find out more by visiting the Artison website!
Here’s to a great 2017.
