We can't be the only people who keep saying to ourselves "...what a year". As we edge towards the end of 2020, all hoping for so many things to be different next year, we're also celebrating all we've achieved in these topsy turvy month. For us, this includes the creation of knack, the only craft subscription box with a monthly live stream workshop. With no prior experience of running a subscription box or craft focused business, the learning curves have been steep and many - but more about that later.
It's the last day of November, and our December box has already sold out, which is an amazing feeling!
So it's time to learn a little more about our December craft expert, Kia Utzen-Frank...
A person of many talents, Kia studied Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art.
Her varied achievements include: inventing the Louver Twisting Comb, creating luxury bespoke marzipan printed cakes, textured chocolate, designing and making unique jewellery, homeware, sculpture, cards and of course Christmas baubles.
Yes, they really are cakes!
Kia designs through making, and her wide-ranging projects come from KUFidea - her idea-generation method, which entails making a model a day "of whatever you find interesting and see where it takes you"!
Kia will be leading our live stream workshop on 13th December, demonstrating how to make marbled ceramic baubles - "little universes of swirling colour" - we can't wait to see what everyone makes!
