Thank you for visiting Meet the Makers, a brand new site dedicated to all those smashing, talented people out there who make stuff, paint stuff, write things, sing things and basically create anything they can, because they can. I can’t you see, making things is not what you could call my strongest point (I still remember my GCSE Art Teacher commenting ‘I really thought you were a B student at one point…but I can see I was wrong‘). But my admiration/jealousy for people who are not only talented but are actively following their passion is never-ending.
So I say: if you can’t join them, meet them instead! Meet the Makers is all about actually meeting these creatives and asking a question or three to find out about their journeys, products, advice, embarrassing anecdotes, anything really that satisfies my curious mind. These ‘chats’ (interview is a strong word don’t you think? Although I use it often. Anyone got an alternative for me?) will introduce you to some of the most original and beautiful hand-made creations and the people behind them. I strongly believe that everyone has a story to tell and in doing so, a little or a lot of inspiration to give – I can’t wait to share some stories with you!
I’m hoping this will cure me of my jealousy as well.
I’m excited! I hope you are too,
PS. Any creators/crafters/artists/artisans, etc who you may know or may in fact be, if you fancy talking about you and your work (whether in person or by email), please leave a comment below or email email@example.com.
