Hello there! I've been working with herbs since I was 13 (blame my mum for giving me a herb garden to care for upon request) and have since qualified as a medical herbalist in the UK. I work with plants a lot, doing all sorts of mucking around from medicine making, plant dyeing and general crafts to cooking and natural home care. I have a bit of an obsession with faery tales and folklore, and am currently working on the Enchanted Herbal, retellings of herbal fairytales from around the world, I recently branched out into designing and cutting my own stencils, which has also branched into making shawls, throws, cushions, bags and other delights for house and home. I love my job, and I'd love to hear from you!
