I’m Kate. I’m an artist and a writer. I make things – mostly out of reclaimed fabric, but I also love to paint and write. And I could never choose which I loved most, so now I don’t choose, I just do, as the mood takes me. You can find me on Instagram where I take pretty pictures of mountainsides, meals and makes. I write for No Serial Number Magazine and will one day finish the novel I started when I was 15. My blog here aims to chart my journey through self employment, home education and saving the planet. Not necessarily in that order!
I love nature, and dry stone walls, paint under my fingernails, and standing with my bare feet on the land and my face to the sun. I love stories. The stories of people, the stories of stuff. I love the idea of carrying stories forward, and of birthing new stories that honor the old. Hippy or witch? I’m maybe both.
Follow me on my journey to open Newcastle’s first zero waste shop. It’s already a great story. Come step into it with me.
My store is here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ThePhoenixGreenStore
Stepping lightly with slow, sustainable craft and zero waste solutions.
