Today I wanted to share a piece that became an accidental piece of storytelling and using words. I also wanted to share the things I found out whilst making it. I hope it helps you with your storytelling and using words on your next project.

    I would love to take part in the scribble owl workshop. But I live in the USA and U dint see that I can pay with the dollar currency. Could you please provide some direction for students outside of the UK?

      Hi, thanks for your interest in this class. I am selling through Etsy so it should respond to where you are and show the currency in your local currency automatically. Maybe try this link:

      OR go to and search ‘Kim Dellow – Scribble Owls’ if you use the quotation marks it should come up with the class and hopefully it will then be in your local currency too.
