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.
The Autumn issue has a ceramics featurette including an interview with Golden Ink Collaborative – Abby Seymour from Golden Ink did the beautiful cover illustration.
