Win a pair of craft books by Super+Super

Hot on the heels of their publishing debut with Printmaking and Embroidery, Brighton crafters Super+Super have released another pair of books with original projects on Crochet and Paper Cutting. And we have one of each to give away!

The Super+Super series, created by Claire Culley and Amy Phipps, centres on the idea of crafting with friends, with tutorials to help creatives of all levels inject originality into their wardrobe, home décor and gifting repertoire.

Crochet and Paper Cutting each contain 20 illustrated tutorials showing readers how to create items such as tablet and phone cases, a wine holder, birthday cake toppers, bunting and garlands and much more using widely-available materials.

Our favourites are the colourful crochet necklace, stool cover and vintage fruit bag. And the paper masks are bound to go down a treat at weddings or any event where there’s an opportunity for photobooth fun.

Each project is fully illustrated with step-by-step instructions, a list of all the tools you’ll need and techniques that are described in detail.
