Workshop Sundays at Quill London

A Petal Unfolds

So I feel slightly embarrassed I’ve become one of those people who has a blog linked to their website and has only updated it once since the start of the year!!! ARGHH! Its one of my pet hates, as actually this blog has become a visual diary and somewhere I can just speak about work, life with no pressure and is in someways is kinda therapeutic. I can only say having a 14 month old is a full time job, as well as working and trying to have some sort of life. And life is what I want to talk about or my creative life.

I’ve been a big fan of Quill London for quite sometime, I love their monogram stationery and classic taste and about 2 years ago I attended their modern calligraphy workshop which I loved. So when I thought about breaking out of my bubble and just doing something for me, I looked at their workshop diary.

I love Esther from Origami Est‘s IG feed and had bought her book when it was released but hadn’t had chance to sit down and focus, so I thought this was the perfect workshop to start my creative journey and it really didn’t disappoint. A fab group of people, Esther was a dream and I was thrilled with my final mobile, even though I left it on the train home when I was trying to juggle a just walking Martha!! Oh well the few hours I did spend doing something just for me really started me thinking about new skills and how quickly time flies when your making.

So the addiction started! And before the end of July I had booked myself into another workshop at Quill  and one of my favourite IG feeds, a petal unfolds. Susan was an amazing teacher and her IG feed is soooo beautiful, most importantly I didn’t need to juggle a baby on the train so I actually have my beautiful peony in a vase on the mantlepiece and I’m just a little bit proud of myself. Susan is definitely one to watch, she was chosen to be part of the Etsy/John Lewis roof garden pop up shop and is creating an incredible window display for Quill as part of the LDF which I’ve earmarked as a must see during my trip to London.

Next on my list is watercolours with Emma Block as I’m just a little bit in love with her Etsy shop and did you see her beautiful illustration in last months Mollie Makes? If you’d like to while away a Sunday afternoon at Quill learning something new check the workshops link and dont forget to take your purse as there are some unique stationery supplies to buy, I’ve never left without a little something.
