This year’s workshop takes a magical journey through the rooms of a dreamland house.

Each page spread opens on a new room and reveals its secrets – salubrious sitting room, delightful dining room, luxuriant library, cosy children’s play room and more. The artwork is playful and decorative rather than literal – the aim being to make a book comprising  doorways that lead the eye into playful environments.

A workshop for the experienced paper engineer and beginner alike.

Residential Fees From: £398.   Non Residential: £282

Course runs from Lunch on Tuesday to Lunch on Thursday.
