Extra Curricular Magazine, Issue 18–The Flora + Fauna Issue
Making is a bi-annual themed publication for creative folk.
In our Flora & Fauna issue, cover artist Laura Shallcrass talks about the symbolic patterns that form her illustrations, Vanessa York invites us down to her basement studio for a lesson in natural perfumery and ceramicist Bonnie Hislop discusses the attraction of animals in art. We show you how to make a fresh floral crown, weave a raffia basket, press flowers for a sun catcher and bake a cake with lavender.
Extra Curricular is about folks who get creative with their spare time. Published out of Auckland, New Zealand twice yearly by Ellie Smith and a small team of dedicated contributors passionate about making and doing, Extra Curricular features up-and-coming creatives from both sides of the Tasman who care about the world and what they are putting out into it.
High production values and beautiful paper stock – combined with a curiosity about the processes and spaces of creative people – make for a compact package that feels nice in your hands.
Created in 2009, and now a few thousand copies down the track, each one is still hand-numbered.
Wool & Honey is the sole U.S. stockist of this brilliant magazine for makers.
