I paper

Paper craft has been a hobby of mine since I was a child and now I would like to share the passion and creativity I have with as many people as possible. Please join me at a workshop soon and discover the joy of working with paper.

Gabbie Ryde

Hello, my name is Gabbie. I am originally from Brooklyn, NY and am now fortunate enough to live on the beautiful Isle of Wight with my lovely husband. I am passionate about paper arts and crafts. My wish is to share my love of paper with others, and help build a creative supportive community together through my workshops. I want to encourage people from every level, from the timidly curious to the experienced crafter, to get their hands busy cutting and glueing paper in all sorts of new and wonderful ways!
