The much anticipated second issue of Extra Curricular comes out on Thursday, and editor Ellie has set up pre-orders on Felt so your copy can be in the first trip to the post office 1 April!
Extra Curricular is a publication dedicated to showcasing people who do interesting creative projects in their spare time as well as encouraging those who wish they did.
Whether they have a 9–5 job, a fledgling business or a young family, the people profiled in Extra Curricular are connected by their passion for keeping the right side of the brain active in their off-hours. They do it for the love of it – driven by a creative urge, they stay up late and work weekends in order to complete their latest side project.
This issue includes a wee illustration featurette, an article about the craft craze and whether it’s possible to make a living selling your wares, interviews with a leather tooler, a jewellery maker, a paper artist, and the girls behind Martha Goes Green talk about self-publishing their vegetarian cookbook. There are a few other treats to be discovered too.
Extra Curricular is printed in full colour with vegetable based inks on beautiful recycled stock.
Anybody who bought issue #1 will be hanging out for their next fix – it’s a gorgeous wee magazine!
