    Silhouette Paper Cutting with Emma van Leest
    I have done paper cutting once before and I just can’t get enough of it! Little bit obsessed here.
    I follow/stalk Emma on Instagram and have just fallen in love with her and her work and would love to learn more.

  • Jess says:

    I would love to attend BLANK’s workshop… With a studio full of rescued items (paper cuts, old boxes, beads and other bits and bobs) but needing some major creative magic, I know this workshop would fill my mind with new ideas (and pockets with sweet BLANK goodies)!

  • Sharni says:

    I would love to attend the class on silhouette paper cutting! I’ve always been fascinated by the detail and effect.. would love to create my own 🙂

  • Melissa says:

    Ohhh I would love to attend ‘Get creative with blank’ workshop.
    I want make a custom word banner using Blanks giltter and washi tape for my pop up store!
    + I need to buy some BLANK tags to customise as tags on my new clothing label.
    DIY all the way!

    I’d also blog about the whole process on stylecreeper.com


  • Emma says:

    I would love to attend the Graphic Paper Art with Pilgrim Lee of Draw workshop so that I can take these fabulous skills and ideas back to my classroom for my primary students to get creative. As that is where creativity is born and not to mention but kids (and me!) love paper art!!!

  • Charlie says:

    Paper chandeliers with Magdalena would be super fun (but then so would Blank and Emma’s paper cutting!)

  • Jenny B. says:

    My daughter’s shifting out of home!… I’d love to help decorate her first (bland) rental with a POLISH PAPER CHANDELIER!

  • Kittybaroque says:

    Lost in a world of B&W in a grey office cubicle, a colourful bright Polish chandelier would light the path to new creative possibilities – I vote for some Magdalena awesomeness!!

  • Amanda says:

    Polish Paper Chandeliers! How amazing are they! Will look amazing in my little girls room! Lots of beautiful, bright color!

  • Clinton M says:

    Get Creative with BLANK! Men also don’t mind a bit of creative enterprise and my childhood hoard of Golden Books is screaming at me! I could finally create the notebooks I fall in love with each time I see them at markets 🙂

  • Getting creative with blank to inspire me with bold colour and expanding my horizons of homemade craft.

  • Marquita Telford says:

    The Silhouette Paper Cutting with Emma van Leest is what I want to learn. To tell stories in shadows and lace is one of the most beautiful things ever, creative, emotional and facinating simply stunning!!!!

  • Lisa says:

    There’ll be no ‘drawing a BLANK’ with this workshop! A splash of colour would go very well with my winter greys…

  • Annette says:

  • Laura dixon says:

    Getting creative with BLANK….there is nothing BLANK about getting creative, the BLANK beads with be filled with colour, painting my BLANk canvas over an out fit with suuuuuuper colour and style.

  • Catherine Andrews says:

    I would love to attend the Get Creative with BLANK workshop! Who wouldn’t want to learn from the experts in making your own custom jewelery.
    I can think of nothing better to cap off an amazing day of shopping for unique and quirky things, than to walk away with my own creation!
