Artist-maker Kirsty O’Connor primarily works with clay and paper –making voluptuous pots and unique books. She also has a wide range of skills and experience in textiles, graphic design and illustration, painting, drawing and community arts.
Her passion for making books started during a course with Eleanor White and has continued through working with other teachers and her own exploration. She loves to share what she has learned and to encourage people to express their creativity through making books.
Kirsty offers a range of workshops, classes, demonstrations and individual tuition in making books –please get in touch for further details.
All classes are held in Kirsty’s well-equipped studio at WASPS in Stockbridge, Participants are limited to six, so that plenty of individual attention can be given. The cost covers all materials including a high quality range of handmade and decorative papers and trimmings, as well as refreshments. There are plenty of places to eat near to the studio or you are welcome to bring a packed lunch. If you have materials you would like to use –do bring them. If you have any queries or wish to discuss the accessibility of these classes please don’t hesitate to give me a ring.
