As a special thank you to all that have pledged to my kickstarter campaign, I'll be picking one person at random to win this large 'wild flowers' signed print. If you've already backed my campaign, you'll be entered into the draw, and if you haven't pledged, here's a bonus reason to do so! Kickstarter is all or nothing, so I'm really hoping with your help, I can reach my target, and make this book a reality.
I'm now half way into my campaign www.kickstarter.com/projects/1321122640/into-the-dark-woods There is still 23 days left to make a pledge. The fun part will come after you've made a pledge, as 'a backer', you'll be able to follow my book as it develops, with exclusive access to behind the scenes.
This is a collection of pieces I made from various past projects.
In my new book, I'll be showing you how to create seven unique paper sculptures, with tips on how you can add detail and texture to your models. In the kickstarter updates (exclusive only to backers of my campaign), I'll be showing the working-out stages of some of the paper templates, giving you an insight into how each template is designed by hand.
An exhibition celebrating Lord Peckover's life and his passion for book collecting.
His collection of rare books and manuscripts were sold off following his death in 1919. To mark the centenary of his death, Peckover House and Gardens have received a lottery grant to find the lost volumes and bring them back to the library for the first time in over 50 years.
An installation of my art-works compliment some of these returned 'lost volumes'.

I also worked with volunteers, making origami paper boats as a symbol for something they themselves had lost, and these are included in the exhibition.
