Do you want to learn how to dye paper using my secret technique? 

Hello, I'm Liz from Book Art Studios and I sell a vast range of unique, scrumptious

and one-of-a-kind handmade books & journals, here in New Zealand. 

I offer a range of book making/book binding classes both online & in person,

which take place in my gorgeous studio.

I'm an author too, and have a range of published books for you to enjoy. 

Now, let's get on with it and get you creating....


P.S Oh, and I offer FOUR day Book Camps (retreats for women) to create yummy books!

Re:Create is a beautiful book (even if I say so myself).

It's packed full of book projects that won't cost the earth (or be a cost to the earth).

The focus is on recreating, repurposing and recycling where you can. This ensures you create unique and charming books that have your personality all over them.

Along the way I'll introduce you to some of my family, I chat about growing up in the Constable Household and how it influenced my art practice. I tackle making mistakes in a fun and practical way in the Miss Takes section. If you're a person who is worried about making mistakes, I'll show you how they can enhance your work and take your books in a direction you might not have thought of.

I'll show you my range of tools and chat about materials. In Re:Create I make suggestions where I can to sub in another item that might do the trick. The aim is always to create using what you already have in, adapt and be inventive.

It is my intention to run classes to accompany the projects in the book in October 2020. I'll let you know when the classes are due to come out, and readers will be offered a discount code to use in the class of their choice.

This book would not be possible without the superb photography by Jason Burgess and the outstanding design by Jo Constable from The Design Space.

A massive thank you to Boosted for providing us with a platform to raise funds for the first print run. And of course, to the wonderful group of people who donated to the Boosted campaign who have supported us to bring this beautiful book into the world. We are truly grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. xx
