Professional Arts Workshop: Recycled Paper Signs and Brooches with Hannah Lobley at Beeston Library
3rd February 2018
Work with Hannah to transform your old paper magazines and books into bespoke interior décor signs. In 2002, Hannah Lobley developed the award-winning Paperwork; a unique recycling technique using unwanted paper layered back into a solid wood like material. She uses traditional wood working methods to create bespoke objects and the surface patternation echoes wood grain. Wood becomes paper becomes wood.
Perfect timing for Valentines Day. Why not make a LOVE sign for your partner or family member to treasure and hang in their home. As well as exploring the paperwork process from scratch to make your sign, Hannah will also bring along some pre-dried paper for you to work with and create a shaped brooch.
This workshop is ideal for beginners.

"I can remember seeing Hannah’s work for the first time when she applied and successfully got a place at The Contemporary Craft Festival. She was at the beginning of her career and it was clear that she had great ambitions and had developed an innovative approach to making.
I really like the origins of her story. In 2002, accidentally leaving a copy of the Lord of Rings out in the rain resulted in bloated damaged pages. The metamorphosed book sparked an idea that has endured throughout her practice. She was initially working with wood but when the destroyed book became solid with layers of paper, she decided, after some manipulation of the material, to put it on the lathe. The resulting “Ring” made for the Tolkien novel was her first sale. Reclaiming old books and papers is at the heart of her practice. She has turned traditional notions of materials on their head and has had great success with international markets, especially in Japan. The Japanese are drawn to her creative use of paper and her ethos of using disposable objects, turning them into durable and evocative objects.
Her first trip to Japan was in 2007, with a trade mission with UKTI, Design Factory & the Arts Council and she has been commissioned numerous times by large corporate clients and even the Ministry of Defence. I’m interested to see how she has developed her practice to be able to work on commissions for corporate clients which requires good organisational and diplomacy skills whilst allowing her to be more ambitious with scale and ideas."
