Paper Air Planes

I have a fascination for paper. It stems from being a kid. I was always drawing or making something and my dad used to bring extra home from work. I make paper wreaths, pom poms and flowers from it using old shopping lists, collage, crowns….

For the launch party of my book, Dinner at Mine, I booked a 1980’s double decker bus to pick up and bring guests from central and east London, to studio e2.

Each guest was given some felt tip pens, a paper cup to customise and to drink fizzy wine from. Sheets of old school computer paper (you know the stuff that has perforated edges that you tear off) were also handed out and everyone were instructed to make paper air planes. These airplanes (with more made by guests in the studio) were then stuck on strips of white gaffer tape stretched between the beams, to decorate the party.

Here’s a few that are still hanging in on there….StudioE2PaperAirplanes

My mum Winnie said if she was ever going to fly then it had to be on Concorde! So the family clubbed together and she flew on a Concorde round trip over the Bay of Biscay fro her 70th birthday. She loved it.

Here’s some more planes….
