I was raised in a very frugal household. My father was very mechanically minded and my grandmother was a seamstress. I was taught to reuse, recycle, upcycle, mend and make do, and I actually love op-shopping and trawling markets so I can repurpose things. I like to know how to make things myself, rather than have people do it for me. I also have terrible allergies and skin sensitivities and have for many years made my own skincare products. Once the internet took off (yes, I’ve been using natural ingredients since before the internet!) and tools and ingredients became more readily available, I then moved onto making my own makeup from scratch. You name it, I’ve probably had a go!
So I like to make, and I think other people want to make as well and just need a bit of a hands-on tutorial and away they go! I’ve got lots of classes coming up, and if there’s a different class you’d like me to teach, contact me and I’ll see what I can do. 🙂
