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.

My mission is to encourage people from every level, from the timidly curious to the experienced crafter, to get their hands busy cutting, stitching, painting and glueing in all sorts of new and wonderful ways!

Whether you want to find out more about my workshops, or you are looking to book your next super awesome Crafty Birthday, Hen Party or Baby Shower with me, there is something here for everyone.

Hello and welcome! Whether you are brand new to the world of craft or an experienced crafter looking for some new ideas for your next project, there is something here for everyone.

Every month you will learn new, wonderful, and easy (I promise!) art and craft techniques. By keeping it monthly, my hope is to create a supportive group where we can encourage each other to continue and prosper, and and have fun getting in touch with our creative and silly side, whether you are with or without the kids!
