I guess I should start from the start, my great nanna taught me how to knit a basic garter stitch when i was 6 years old, I made lots of scarfs that summer :)
My mum, taught me how to sew, and have sewn on and off for years. I love sewing as it gives me instant gratification, as a teen I would modify my clothes to make them stand out and be different to my peers. At the moment I love making cloth dolls, or art dolls as they are also called.
I have also had a love of colour since I can remember!
when I left school, I went on to train as a make up artist in London, I loved doing cat walk looks or high fashion because you get to play with colour and your imagination, I then went on to study crystal healing and other holistic Therapies including colour therapy.
I have recently rekindled my love with knitting, and as a consequence my craft stash is getting out of hand, I love raw fibre especially pure wool, I love the smell, the feel, the softness. I love to needle felt and wet felt, it's so satisfying to fuse the fibres together! Watch the the shapes form and become dense.
Would love to learn spinning, and I am hopefully taking a workshop at knit nation this year, i have brought a drop spindal..so watch this space for uneven creations.
