I have always enjoyed making things. From the time that my children were very small I made them wooden toys. I sourced the wood from pieces of scrap and discarded timber.
The arrival of grandchildren rekindled my interest in wooden toys and now a second generation are enjoying the delight of a hand crafted toy.
Since obtaining a teaching certificate in 2011 many other doors have opened and I have become a crafter and demonstrator for other organisations. In particular I teach paper quilling and paper-making. I now have a studio in Antrim where I take workshops in these crafts.
