Singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke was inspired by papercrafter Kayte Terry to make beautiful music.
Since junior high, papercrafter Kayte Terry has been a fan of folksinger Jonatha Brooke, so the thought of being her opening act was nerve-wracking. A couple of years ago, Kayte was scheduled to be the keynote speaker at Squam Art Workshops in New Hampshire and Jonatha followed her to rock the workshop. The two artists hit it off so well they started talking about a tour, crafting and singing across the country. They eventually made a video together, based on the projects in Kayte's book, Paper Made, which inspired Jonatha to write a bouncy, mellifluous sing-a-long song.
Jonatha narrates their video, Crafty Girls, and it's a cavalcade of cuteness, filled with paper boats and cities built from the pages of books.
Jonatha's song also inspired Kayte to create something she had never done before: a stop-motion video featuring her papercrafts. Click here to read the interview we did with Kayte Terry a couple years ago.
