About your host, Marigold The Maker
Marigold started out as a Primary School Teacher and taught for 15 years in inner city London Schools. Her career culminated in a headship at an East London Primary School but in 2018 Marigold took the brave plunge to follow her heart and pursue a career as an artist and maker.
For years she'd pour over books such as "Makers of East London" and "Hackney Studios" on Sunday afternoons, dreaming wistfully of a life as a maker and now she finds herself a fully fledge full-time maker with a studio in Hackney Downs! Throughout her career in education, Marigold always really wanted to teach art. Personally, she found relief from the business of work in her many ongoing craft projects. She views craft projects and learning new creative skills as the perfect antidote to the over stimulus of the world of technology, internet and social media.
Growing up on a mountain in Wales without a TV gave Marigold plenty of time to develop her creativity. Coming from a family of crafters, the skills of sewing and embroidery were passed down to her through the generations of women. Now in the era of the internet, technology and social media, the need for making has never been higher. She wishes to pass on skills that give people an antidote to social media and a creative purpose for their hands. She is passionate about teaching skills such as embroidery, calligraphy and printing that bring people back into the present, create beautiful hand made objects as well as help sooth away anxiety.
All materials are provided including tea, coffee and home made cake! A full take-home calligraphy starter kit will be available to purchase at a discounted price for workshop participants at the end of the workshop. The starter kit contains: Higgins Eternal ink, Nikko G nib, oblique and wooden pen holders, illustrated instructions and stockist lists.
