(New) National Theatre Bookshop Visit

I’ve posted before about visiting the National Theatre Bookshop, when it was in its temporary home earlier this year. It’s now re-opened in its permanent home and it looks GREAT! It does feel as bit as though they’ve gone into my brain and chosen all my dream things… Along with a great selection of books… Read more »

National Theatre Bookshop Haul

What’s in this crumbled bag, I hear you ask… Well, the other day I was wasting time on the Southbank before meeting some friends and I thought I’d pop into the new National Theatre Bookshop.

London Stationery Show 2014

On Tuesday afternoon I went to visit the London Stationery Show at the Business Design Centre: It was really an event for buyers, rather than little ol’ bloggers like me so it was mainly sales talk and people with suits on. But I just had a bit of wander round looking at the various stands…. Read more »

SMUG visit

I visited SMUG  a few weeks ago to do a Lino printing workshop and slightly fell in love with it, so thought I’d go back for a proper visit last weekend. It’s in the lovely Camden Passage in Islington, and here is what it looks like: It’s run by Lizzie Evans (you can read all… Read more »
