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.
Add your name to my mailing list on the left of this page to receive updates of news and events. I look forward to seeing you at my studio or hearing from you.

Above is one of four new promotional films for North York Moors tourism in which I feature! Do take a look at it to see a glimpse of my studio and other attractions in stunning Dalby Forest.
If you are a primary school teacher, I am running a one day workshop "Creative Papermaking in the Classroom" at the Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate on Tuesday November 5th. These teacher workshops are provided by The Yorkshire Agricultural Society and are FREE! This workshop is now fully booked but I shall be running another one next May.

The festive season is fast approaching and you will no doubt be starting to think about Christmas shopping! I will be attending 3 fairs this year starting with The Moors National Park Centre at Danby on 16th & 17th November. I will then be at the St. Nicholas Fayre at Barley Hall in the centre of York from November 28th to December 1st. Then lastly at the Christmas Market in Ramsden near Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire on December 7th. I shall be selling a range of my latest work including candle and t-light holders, albums and notebooks, wrapped soaps, wall decorations, papermaking kits....and more! (Details on the Events page.) Papermaking kits may be purchased on my Online Shop up until 18th December for Christmas delivery.
Christmas tree sales will be here in the Courtyard at weekends this December and the café will be open every day so why not come down and combine a visit to my studio. As I have various events and workshops through November, please check beforehand that my studio will be open.
Look forward to seeing you!
