This month has been a busy one. Besides moving back (which is not only a relief but a light logistic nightmare) I have also been busy planning and developing various classes and workshops aimed at beginners and intermediates. I hope these classes will be fun and will also help my core business, my Ten Cloudy brand, to survive. I also had a very nice final interview with QEST panel, which is a charity dedicated to excellence in British craftsmanship through investing in talent, supporting education, sustaining skills and promoting excellence. Hopefully, I will get a grant for further training, fingers crossed).
This month I wanted to touch on sustainability. It’s something that has become prominent and is extremely important to our lives. Having grown up on a livestock farm most of my life and being the fourth out of five children, I have always had a sense of making, mending, re-purposing and using items for the long term with plenty of hand-me-downs. This ideology includes the whole process behind the production of food and goods, whilst limiting waste and improving the quality of ethically reared animals.
