Amanda Clark Brewer's Profile

About

I've been creating things for as long as I can remember... in primary school my Mum gave me my first sewing machine - a miniature hand-operated one and I made hair scrunchies for all my friends! As a teenager I would redesign my wardrobe with a pair of scissors, and make jewellery from safety pins and other random pieces of metal.
I've always been fascinated with re-using materials and making things they weren't originally intended for (like when I wove a hat from my brother's dreadlocks - so he could still wear them if he wanted to). There's a beauty in that I think, like holding an old book in your hands and feeling its history without needing to know what it is.
This is just the beginning though, and I look forward to the glorious path that unfolds in front of me. Thanks for sharing the journey...
Peace and Love
