The Flora & Fauna issue

Issue 18 is out! We got Laura Shallcrass on board to create a woodland meadow summer vibe for the Flora & Fauna issue, and wrapped her beautifully ornate illustration right round the cover (a first for Extra Curricular). There's a yummy new cover stock, and inside we've freshened up the design too. 

Queenstown cover artist Laura 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.

Grab one online in our Felt or Big Cartel stores, or at one of our lovely stockists listed here (or drop a hint to Santa). Extra Curricular also makes a great gift to post overseas – just $3.00 to send anywhere in the world.

Wishing everyone a happy summer with plenty of swims and lazy reading time ahead!
