Thank you for visiting Papermaking at Pulpitations and welcome to my website! I hope you will be inspired by my work and the wonderful world of papermaking.
I call myself a "papermaking artist" as I make decorative handmade paper which I use to create works of art and practical paper objects. I am constantly experimenting to find new and different methods of producing papers and pulps to further my teaching and for my own work.
I began my business "Pulpitations" 5 years ago in the Courtyard at Dalby Forest near Pickering on the beautiful North York Moors. I make and sell my lamps and products from here and run workshops both in my studio and elsewhere.

News: March 2014
Spring is in the air and the sun is shining through the trees here in Dalby Forest! I am currently working on new ideas and sampling designs for lamps which I will be exhibiting at the British Craft Trade Fair at Harrogate from 6th to 8th April. I shall be on Stand 186 and if you would like a trade invitation please do not hesitate to contact me and I will look forward to meeting you there. For more information: www.bctf.co.uk
If you would like to experience a whole day of Creative Papermaking I am running a workshop at Rural Arts in Thirsk on Saturday 8th March. There are still some places available. For booking: www.ruralarts.org
A new event for 2014 is Springtime Live at the Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate on Sunday 13th April where I will be running papermaking sessions. This will be a similar event to Countryside Live which is a held in October. For more details: www.yas.co.uk
After careful consideration I have decided from now on to limit opening times for visitors to my studio in Dalby Forest. I need more time to work uninterrupted and greater flexibility to attend events and workshops so I shall only be open during school holiday periods or by appointment. My studio will be open next on Friday April 11th for the Easter holiday period (days and times to be confirmed nearer the time.)
Please feel free to contact me by email or phone should you want to make an enquiry about workshops, bookings etc.
