Hi! I’m Faryal. I live in Nottinghamshire, UK with my Husband, our two young sons, and a small dog.
Before being married and becoming a mum I worked a full-time IT job. I also moved far from friends and family and felt the need to fill my spare time outside of work with something creative. I signed up to a basic interior design course and the creative juices were stirred! I went on to do another more intense interiors course which really pushed my artistic boundaries, and I loved it!
Soon I was married, we bought our first home, and became parents. This is when my interest in crafts and home DIY projects began. But, working and being a busy mum made it difficult to really cultivate those interests beyond ideas.
Fast-forward to the Spring of 2020 and a global pandemic. My boys are no longer babies, and I’m sure you have heard this from others, but that extra time I suddenly had at home allowed me to once again think about how I would fill the spare time.
I realised my home was still a blank canvas. It needed lifting with colour and art. It was then that I discovered a textile art called, Macramè, and had to try it for myself. Macramè became my therapy, and after Macramè came weaving, and so much more!
