the projects

The following videos are some inspiration, to demonstrate the potential of the materials inside the manual.  They are by no means the ‘right’ way to use them!  We’d love to see your own outcomes so don’t forget to post on our instagram @aworkinprogressuk

sticky labels:

  •  once you’ve removed the sticky labels from the envelope you can stick them to the page (and each other) to create 3D textures
  • they are a great material for making an interactive surface which also makes a sound when you run your hand across it
  • this video shows you how can create a simple surface, inspired by my own textile designs

view finders:

  •  remove the view finder page from the binder
  • choose a subject, this could be your garden, a city skyline or a bowl of fruit
  • using one of the view finder shapes, hold it in front of the subject, this will give you a ‘border’ allowing you to capture the image within it
  • you can draw the shape of the viewfinder on your paper/canvas/notebook, it will help to give you reference points

paper weaving: 

  •  coming soon!


  •  using this ready-made texture, you can create a picture and explore the tactile qualities – can a friend work out what you’ve drawn when their eyes are closed?
  • using another sheet of paper and a simple pencil, or even some charcoal, you can use it as a base to take a rubbing


  •  coming soon!

push-out sequins:

  •  a very quick look behind the scenes at the lair-cutting of my first trial cut of the sequins page

sticky notes:

  •  this little video might seem obvious, but it’s full of positives!
  •  and this one is all about textures

printing with junk:

  •  coming soon!


  •  coming soon!


  •  coming soon!
