#MarchMeetTheMaker – Day 6
Full or part time. Here’s a photo of me at our final show at Leeds Arts University. Full of hope for fairy futures! The dream would be to make little things and tell stories full time, but in reality I have a day job that is unrelated to my degree. I’d like to be doing something more creative but this position is something that’s helped keep me floating post uni and be able to pay the bills!
Sometimes I get sad that I’m not doing what I paid to study but then I try to remind myself that this isn’t forever and that there are many of us here in the same position! Some friends from uni found funky creative jobs, others are freelancing or working as self employed artists, and others are in a similar retail boat. I keep making dolls at every opportunity, and I’m THINKING full time about Whistle-stop Thistle.
Trying not to give up hope or let go of crafty motivation.
