Paper Only: 20 ways to kick-start your creativity

By Claire Heafford and Louise Hall

Since opening the doors to their studio in 2009, The Papered Parlour has welcomed over 5000 participants to their creative workshops and public craft events, winning a loyal following of ardent fans.

In the first book from The Papered Parlour, founders Claire Heafford and Louise Hall explore one of the most basic of all materials: paper. From artists and designers to writers and craft practitioners, the journey of creativity always begins with a blank sheet.

Print, cut, sketch and fold your way through the fundamentals of art and design as you push paper to its limits. With over 20 inspiring paper projects, the book draws from a variety of artistic disciplines including fine art, print design, typography and interiors. From colour and pattern to composition and texture, each project will teach you a new design skill. But ultimately, this is an ode to and a celebration of paper, giving you carte blanche to explore your creative self.
