One of four (Simpson) sisters, I am a country lover, city dweller, wife, mother, daughter, sister. I am curious, sociable and I love making things. I have a healthy sense of adventure and have spent much of my adult life accompanying my wonderful husband around the globe, trying many new things along the way but most importantly producing two truly lovely daughters. Now enjoying life back in England I am appreciating the benefits of creativity and simplicity.
What began here as a personal blog to document the renovation of a barn in a very special part of the world to me (see my first blog post here) has somehow combined with my inherent love of making into a small business which I am thoroughly enjoying as I nurture it along learning as I go.
My aim is to encourage and enable people to explore and enjoy their creativity by hosting a variety of creative workshops in Bristol and offering a lovely space in which people might offer their own in at Oak Tree Barn in North Somerset. I take pleasure in sharing my home while watching people discover how learning something new in a relaxed friendly environment can leave them feeling fulfilled and content.
I look forward to getting to know you, either online or in a workshop, so do follow along on social media or comment on my blog posts, I’d really love to know what you think and feel.
