Hannah Lobley

After accidentally leaving a book out in the rain, Hannah Lobley developed the internationally exhibited and award winning Paperwork, a unique recycling technique using the printed pages of unwanted books and paper. The pages are layered and transformed back into a solid wood like material. Traditional wood working methods are then used to create interior objects from that material. The surface patternation of the paper when the objects are worked echoes wood grain. Wood becomes paper becomes wood.

Paperwork is committed to sustainability, combined with traditional making techniques; the material and objects produced are very tactile, open and adaptable appealing to many, from the book lover and art enthusiast, to the ecologically conscious, interior designers, architects and those just looking for the unique and unusual. Paperwork is available for sales, site specific commissions, and individual projects. Each product and material is hand-made in England; and is a one off, unique item in which the distinct surface texture cannot be recreated. Why not have something beautiful recycled and created from a book or papers personal to you?

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 30 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
