paper is reaching new heights…we have launched!

The Paper Convention Collective has officially launched, at the Finders Keepers [Carriageworks]!  After months of preparation, organising, designing, creating + making, skyping and discussing we have started with a huge PAPER-BANG!!!!

We were overwhelmed with the response and support from paper lovers, creators, designers & general paper people turning up in their droves to see our undeniably colourful & dynamic paper installation by paper-duo Trial&Error, where people were invited to help build the environment for the duration of the market and viewers became an integral part of the work – its all about collaboration & interaction!

We got people involved by signing up to our PAPER CONVENTION COLLECTIVE mailing list, we sold our notepads in order to raise some funds for next years event [all made out of 100% paper offcuts] and the absolute hit were our paper masks, wow did people love these!! Our ‘Polaroid’ hall of paper fame was enticing and people just couldn’t get enough of paper!

And we ran PAPER WORKSHOPS the entire time, from paper flower bomb making to zine making and much more, and from kids to adults, we all came together to celebrate & collaborate with PAPER!

We will be posting more photos from the event soon, including some fun animation, but until then – DREAM, BUILD & CREATE WITH PAPER!

the paper workshop. call out to artists.

Hello Sandwich & Lox+Savvy hosted a zine making and paper workshop on Saturday at Kaleidoscope gallery in Paddington. With K.W Doggett generous enough to supply some colourful and vibrant paper, which let all the [very] creative attendees make super-cute zines.

Whilst Hello Sandwich supplied up-to-the-minute advice and creative talk on how to create a ‘Japanese-inspired’ zine {including some super-adorable books on the subject}, myself [Lox+Savvy] demonstrated how to create your own hand-made envelopes and paper goods {with the help of a little known book called ‘Papercraft’} and not to mention the lovely Giotta [from Miss Béba] making us yummy chocolate crackles, it was an inspiring day for all!

There are plans for Lox+Savvy & Hello Sandwich to host further paper-based workshops! Stay tuned!
