A passion turned into a craft

Welcome,

Here you will find my explorations in shekeres and silk. I stumbled across the Brazilian Carnival scene in Manchester in 2009 and the journey went from there. I got involved in Carnival arts as a volunteer, I learned to paint hundreds of meters of silk and cotton for costumes, and started playing in different Brazilian influenced music projects over the years. Experiencing different cultures from across the world and meeting some key, influential musicians and artists sparked my interest in making and led me to make my own products, inspired by the techniques I learned whilst doing this. I wanted to combine this vibrant scene into products, so people can take away a little bit of Carnival with them.

As I progress, so will my products.

Thanks for reading,

Dan
