About us

Print + Paper + Book Workshops are run by Jo Olive and Heather Matthew. We believe in all things ink, paper and book, and we also believe that making beautiful things in beautiful places is good for the soul. Our workshops are not just about learning a new skill, they are small and intimate explorations of creativity, they are experiences that encompass place, making and conversation. They are inspiring, often unusual, sometimes intense and always fun.

Together, we collaborate on various artist book and print projects. Apart, we run our own creative businesses.

Jo is the maker and owner of Olive and the Volcano. Along side her super talented husband, Jo runs a letterpress studio in the hills that also specialises in handmade books and paper goods.
