I am passionate about making books and using everyday, upcycled materials to create something both personal and unique. I make travel journals, wedding books and photo albums by commission but what I get a real buzz out of is sharing skills and teaching bookbinding workshops.
I work in collaboration with a range of organisations and cultural venues across Scotland to devise and deliver workshops, past partnerships include - Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art, The Edinburgh Remakery, Leith Academy, Dynamic Earth, Voluntary Action Service South Lanarkshire. I also run workshops in more informal settings, for parties, event openings and groups of friends.
Each workshop is tailor-made to fit the requirements of the group and everyone leaves with their very own finished book and the skills to make many more.
