Last Friday I took my toolbox on the road and spent the day at Walford Mill Craft Gallery as a guest maker for Dorset Arts Weeks. It was great to be amongst people and I had some very interesting conversations with visitors to the gallery & shop about creative ways to use my books and also about the ethics of the eco-friendly materials I'm exploring at the moment.

🌱I'm feeling super excited about the #ecofriendly materials I'm making journals & sketchbooks with at the moment and it's a lovely co-incidence that on #WorldEnvironmentDay I'm writing about them! Did you know #cork forests are protected by law, that #linen is super sustainable & that you can get amazing #handmade #paper made from #recycled t-shirts?
