Paper at Home Book Review

Last week I popped over to the beautiful Quill shop in Clerkenwell for a little launch party for Esther Thorpe's first book Paper Home. I adore Esther's work and I've featured her in my Meet the Makers series here if you'd like to find out more about her lovely work.

The book is beautiful. It's full of modern origami projects that are not only relaxing to make but useful too. The book teaches you how to make 15 projects from decorative star garlands to an ambitious concertina lampshade. If you'd like to learn Esther's origami techniques you can buy the book here.

At the bloggers launch event Est taught us how to make her decorative diamonds which were so addictive to make, I think they'd make perfect christmas decorations. As we folded we drank prosecco and nibbled on super yummy Crosstown doughnuts, it was a perfect evening with like-minded creatives.

Thank you to Quill, Pavillion Books and of course Est herself for such a lovely event.


  1. Paper Home looks like such a lovely book, I love Esther's work too!

  2. What a fun evening! crafting and doughnuts? A perfect combination! I'll have to take a look as the book, it looks great!

  3. Wow!This is how I dreamed.I wanna build my house with aluminium double and triple glazing glasses. Can you please help me to get the best aluminium double glazing suppliers?
