Particle Press: Fiona Leighton

Fiona Leighton of Particle Press and the Thousand Paper Cranes, graduated from the Royal College with an MA in Printmaking, and in 2011 she developed her range of screen printed loveliness including tote bags, cushions, lampshades and stationery.

Originally from Scotland, Fiona is inspired by nature, birdwatching, walking in the countryside and a love for collecting. Everything is designed, hand printed and made by Fiona in her print studio in the countryside near Falmouth, with a little help from her husband!

After making 1000 paper cranes for their wedding and spending hours folding, the paper crane has become their symbol for hard work, patience and a love for making things.
