I'm a Creative Technologist who likes to dabble in amateur photography, origami and digital imagery whenever I get the chance. I've selected some photo prints, various bits of origami and photo loops on computer screens for this years trail.
I set up Make and Do in 2010 with the intention of encouraging people to be creative and to provide beautiful hand made things for people who don't have time to make it themselves.
I stock a range of craft supplies including buttons, ribbon, fat quarters and lots of other goodies. I have also designed a range of kits and provide free templates and instructions via my website and facebook page.
I make a range of ready made and made to order items including personalised bunting, hand print cushions, fabric creatures and tea-cup pin cushions.
