BUY THE BOOK BEFORE APRIL 30TH 2021 AND GET A FREE ONLINE CLASS WHICH SHOWS YOU HOW TO CREATE THE CLOTH BOOK AS SEEN IN RE;CREATE!
Join book artist Liz Constable in her studio where she demonstrates how to create funky, fun book projects, using easily sourced items that won't cost the earth or be a cost to the earth.
Re:Create is an easy to follow, how-to guide to making unique and personalised books by hand. With a focus on repurposing, reusing and recycling, Liz approached the projects in Re:Create with a budget of just NZ $35. She visits her local flea markets and charity shops to source tools and materials that catch her eye, adding incidental treasures from her collage trolley to really bring her book projects to life.
LEARN HOW TO:
Spot everyday items that can be repurposed into books, covers and/or pages.
Use collage, found objects and stamps to customise your covers and contents.
Turn a disaster into an opportunity to create a truly unique piece of work.
AFRAID TO MAKE MISTAKES?
Don't be! Liz tackles mistakes in a fun and playful way. As an experienced book arts tutor, she knows how the fear of doing-it-wrong can hold people back. In the Miss Takes chapter, she encourages readers to transform slip-ups and gaffes into fun and reusable matter for detailing and finishing the featured projects.

Re:Create the big book of book projects, tips, techniques and Miss Takes
My handmade books are made with my hands in my studio. Each one is an individual creation. My style is raw and organic. The journals are designed to be created in. I often dye the paper that's inside the journals, please note the pages are not 'set', i.e. if you spill something onto the page it will change!
