Hi, I’m Holly. Right now I’m in my last year of university in London as an art student, and when I finish studying I want to set up my own crafts business. I can just imagine sitting at a beautiful wooden desk in my own house, using my hands to make intricate little objects for people to give as delicious gifts, or simply to treat themselves to something pretty. All of my handmade work being posted out across the world…
Well, that’s the dream, and this blog is to document the daunting and exciting journey there!
I taught myself to bead weave a couple of years ago when I lived in Paris. My nan had given me a whole bag of beads and books that she wasn’t using anymore. I stumbled upon the bead district around Rambuteau and discovered an Aladdin’s cave that was hard to resist! Currently I’m learning how to knit and sew after attending a few free classes at a cafe.
Perhaps the really, really big dream is to have my own boutique one day, where people can come in to socialise and make things and enjoy a relaxing drink together. My own Aladdin’s cave-come-cafe.
