Paper and Smiles Studio
Paper and Smiles Studio opened in March 2019 and is located in the wonderful Woodborough Yard. It is owned and run by Kirsty Cross, who is a designer maker specialising in illustration and lino printing.
You will find Kirsty in the studio most days, working away designing new products or teaching creative workshops in all sorts of things from lino printing, to lampshade making and beeswax wraps. The studio is open to other artists and crafters to come in and teach – which has so far included a mixed media artist, a seamstress and a silversmith, with more creatives in the pipeline!
Kirsty is passionate about enabling creativity in everyone (even those who don’t feel that they are creative), all her workshops are suitable for the complete beginner – you are guaranteed to leave with a beautiful creation of your own making, as well as having had a couple of relaxing hours learning a new skill.
The Studio is also home to a Craft Kit Shop – packed full of lovely craft kits from other UK based independent businesses and with priced from just £3, there really is something for every budget and every interest!
You can also purchase greetings cards and gifts made by Kirsty directly from the Studio.
