When was the last time you wrote a letter?

When was the last time you wrote a letter? Not an email or a facebook message or event 2 lines in a greeting card, we are talking a real letter here, a from the heart 5 page affair telling that special someone just how special they really are. Well here is your chance. We are very excited to be hooking up with The Letter Lounge to host a unique event as part of next weekends Mother's Day Pop-Up  Shop. 

From 2pm-4pm on Sunday 27th March we will be offering you the space to come in and write a letter to your mum, loved one or friend.  Open you heart and mind, spill the beans and get it on paper. We will provide the tea, cake, paper, pens and will have stamps for sale, we will even post if for you. All you need to provide the words.

It is a drop in event so no need to book your slot. Now who are you going to write to?

Made Not Manufactured

Original design by Andrea Taylor
Its not often you get the chance to say proudly to someone I made that. Whether it is a sketchbook or a little notebook for all your daily thoughts, bookbinding somehow seems so complicated, so mystical and certainly not something which can be learnt in a couple of hours.
Tomorrow night Andrea Taylor is here to dispel that myth. Using recycled paper and flyers Andrea will show you how to make your own books using traditional binding techniques, for just £15 per person.
So why not give it a go, there are only 5 places left , sign up for your place now using the google cart to your right.
