Studio Tour Enquiries

Our Studio Tours are a fabulous opportunity for you to provide our viewers and potential customers with a direct insight into you as a designer-maker including your workspace, your inspirations and your design methodologies. The Studio Tour is a comprehensive illustrative, expressive and pictorial delight for our viewers and a fantastic opportunity for you to raise awareness of your processes and creative musings.

Please see past examples here.

We (Jo and Carolyn) will both come and visit you for 2 hours at a convenient time, hold an informal interview and conduct a photoshoot. Thus allowing potential customers a deeper comprehension of what goes in to every product you make. Readers will get to meet you as a maker and begin to understand the background and journey you take to create your individual products.

‘The whole interview process was really enlightening for me…it was the speaking out loud that made me realise I’ve got this! The experience has been really encouraging. Your own faith can get you so far but it’s wonderful to have a lift from fellow creatives. So thank you Jo and Carolyn’
— Yasmin Hood
‘I really feel this is the best expression of the concepts and processes behind by work that I’ve been privileged enough to read, so a massive thank you to Jo and Carolyn for capturing studio life so eloquently and sensitively.’

— Sarah Fennell, Freckled Fennell
‘I had such a nice time when The Paperdolls came to visit. We talked, we laughed and I had one of those moments when I realised that I don’t need to be shy of my work; I can start to feel proud…..Super photography by Carolyn and words by Jo. Two very generous ladies who are building up The Paperdolls to be one of the best places to buy craft outside of London.’
— Katie Robbins, Ceramic Magpie
