About the teacher: 

Susan is a lover of all things paper and founder of Born In Paper. It is fair to say Susan’s obsession for the beautiful textures, colours, even the smell of printing and paper, has quite literally been ingrained in her since birth. Growing up in a family printing business inByron Bay meant hands on with everything. Binding notepads, collating, sorting lead type or dusting golds on wedding stationery.

For years, Susan was taking office waste from her work place and recycling it into handmade papers. Now, Susan shares her passion with her Born In Paper workshops, creates large wall art and sculptured light filled paper bowls. If you love handmade papers, creating something new, you will love this workshop.
