"The Crochet Kid" aka Sannapanda
Jack of all crafts and Master of none (except maybe papier mache!)
Studied Cobblery in Hackney many moons ago.
Location remains the same, but has careered wildly through the world of furniture, animation, sculpture, merchandising (to name but a few!)
Nowadays mainly working on own gift and homewares label Sannapanda and teaching crochet to keen craft-wannabes!
However, will happily entertain the notion of any opportunities and collaborations to add to her endless list of distractions!
Special skills: crochet, upholstery, screen-printing, shoe-making, pattern-cutting (accessories), papercraft, thinking outside of the box!
Special needs: touch of ADD, taken procrastination to a whole new level!
