Rachel Hazell

Rachel Hazell, also known as The Travelling Bookbinder, believes everyone has a book inside them, and is keen to get them out. Workshop locations around the world have included a lighthouse on Shetland, a Venetian palazzo and an eco-hostel on Iona. Her PaperLove e-course gives a broad introduction to bookart, developing origami, calligraphy and bookbinding. She creates literary sculpture in response to landscape, using the book form as her medium. Rachel looks forward to exploring and mapping StAnza with paper and words, getting poets and visitors folding books of their own.
