Meet the artist Kerry… Art and crafts has always been a part of her life, whether it is painting, card making, sewing, renovating or restoring furniture. She finds it therapeutic to create. After working in a demanding role within aged care for 14 years, her passion for art became her personal therapy, it was here that she facilitated art to groups to over 65’s & first-hand saw the real benefits for those attendees, within the sessions there were as expected moments of fun and social connectivity, but also moments of silence where collectively the group were focused in a natural meditative state. She always knew this was a special time however it wasn’t until undertaking Neurolinguistics training & hypnotherapy that she realised how important these moments are for everyone's wellbeing.
Meet the maker Jay… along with working in air-conditioning, makes time to source the best wood either new or old restoring to make handcrafted cheeseboards, clocks or tables for our resin classes.
