I started my woodcraft Journey in 2017. Fueled by a desire to learn and create handmade, functional, beautiful objects that I could make for my home. There are so many ways craft and creating has made my life richer. I am grateful to have the opportunity to share what I know, be connected and inspired by others that are drawn to this community.
