Sarah Morpeth

Today i attended a workshop which was led by Sarah Morpeth. She produces beautiful artist books by cutting and folding paper to create intricate pop-up designs. The image below shows her work, take a look at her website to see the rest of her gorgeous pieces.

In the workshop she demonstrated how to make and range of different books by folding and cutting paper. Then by adding cuts along the folds of the pages, she taught how to create pop-ups on the pages of our books. She also showed us how to make a stitch book, by using a range of papers to create the pages, and a needle and thread technique to bind the book together.

The Fairground

Another piece of work i did in college, whilst i was on an applied arts course which i loved! This one was for a project called 'The Fairground'

Looking back...

Looking through pictures on my camera and i came across lots of old photos from college so i thought i would post these pictures i found from my exhibition show for my Final Major Project, inspired by the English Garden.
