Scurry & Peck

Indie Biz ownerStephanie Kitching

Scurry & Peck was born from a lifelong obsession with notebooks and a curiosity to bind bundles of paper together to make my own. It got to the point where I had to open a shop because of all the piles of journals! Each book is a project, a beautifully unique work of art that is handmade with love, here at my studio/kitchen table in Nottinghamshire.

I enjoy sourcing and repurposing preloved items for materials such as faux leather handbags from a local charity shop, a damaged leather coat donated by a friend or vintage wallpaper found whilst rummaging in online marketplaces. In addition to this I have a stash of papery goodness at my fingertips.

I am always working on new journals and my order book is currently open to custom requests. Previous commissions include baby and wedding photo albums, bespoke art journals and bullet journal planners plus a collection of very special journals and affirmation cards to feature in a beautifully curated wellbeing box. Feel free to contact me with your ideas - I am excited to work with you.

Over the years I have been teaching all kinds of paper craft workshops at various events, including Scurry & Peck Bookbinding Club, and I hope to offer more participatory events as soon as possible.
