The A4 Paper Festival had their opening night on Tuesday at The Paper Mill in Sydney and I got the wonderful task of selling zines at their zine stall.
The stall included zines from Mechelle B - folks loved her 'Little book of bearded chaps', Georgia Perry,Paper conventions very own Kit Palaskas whose Tiny book of disguises almost sold out and Paper Jewellery artist Anna Gleeson who was also exhibiting had a zine called 'A Playful search of beauty' which I wanted to purchase. As you can see by the table, so much to choose from. I also got to sell copies of my 'Little Book Of Mt Masking Tape' zine and 'Snap Tokyo Girls Bunting'.
It was clear that A4 Paper Festival founder Lisa Loxley's hard work paid off by seeing all the amazing paper artists she had curated for the event. Trial & Error's Paper City and Anna Gleeson's Paper Jewellery greeted exhibit goers in Paper Mill's street windows, inside were installations and 3D Paper works by; Hattie Newman, Jesse Brown, Matthew Roland and Benja Harney.I was in awe of Japan's Yoshinobu Miyamoto's giant paper dome sculpture! Some of these artists will be doing workshops hosted by the Paper Convention, so get in quick for tix!
Other stalls included The Paper Convention table which was selling posters, programs (works of art in itself) paper glasses, paper puzzle and Japanese paper airvase baskets from Upon a fold.
All paper from the night and for workshops are supplied by K.Doggett fine paper. I could see many people through the night having fun making paper dogs and notebooks. Love the hanging confetti pinatas!
It was a PAPER PARTY!
