Making items by hand is a joyful activity that gives a great sense of achievement. You can work with all sort of materials but creating something from scratch and seeing it become a finished product is satisfying, providing a feeling of contentment.
Opening a shop on Folksy where sellers make handmade items is a step towards creating for someone else, to produce something that will benefit someone else, and making work outside of my experiences. I’ve always felt hesitant to sell items I’ve made because they still reference ideas in my art work, but they aren’t mutually exclusive. I see it as an opportunity to express my love of the natural world outside of the context of personal experiences etc. I will be making cards, accessories and items for the home by printing and stitching.
