SO yesterday was the Mollie Makes Handmade Awards day, and what a day it was! Finalists from all categories were invited to a day of events and networking at Dead Dolls House in Islington, London.
The day started at 9.30am with a cup of tea and mingling, and then the morning workshop was a macrame lesson by Peas and Needles. I didn't manage to finish my macrame plant holder but hope to this week - although I did find it hard to get my head around the knotting techniques :D
It was so lovely to meet my eight fellow Best Product category finalists, they are all so talented. The winner, Little Paisley Designs, was very well deserved.
In the afternoon I went on a colour walk led by In Colourful Company, listened to a thought provoking panel discussion on working smarter, not harder, and the wonderful Keith Brymer Jones gave an encouraging keynote speech.
It was a very long, (and hot!), day, and I arrived back in Plymouth at 10pm definitely ready for a cup of tea!
Massive thanks to the team at Mollie Makes for organising such an inspiring day jam packed full of wonderful fellow creatives.
