Hello Cramblings!

Hello and welcome to Cramblings, a blog for creatives of all kinds!

So, what is Cramblings?

Cramblings is a place for creative ramblings, where I will get together with wonderful creatives from all sorts of crafts and disciplines to have a chat about everything and anything to do with being a creative: the wins, the worries, the ups, the downs, the trials and the errors of trying to make it as a maker.

As amazing as pursuing a creative career is, it can be a little lonely at times, especially if you are self-employed and work from home. As an artist and illustrator myself, I’ve been there, so I’m always looking for spaces in which creatives can come together and just get excited, talking about what they love doing.

A space to create, connect and explore.

Et voilà, Cramblings was born.

Who is behind Cramblings?

My name is Dora and, as I mentioned, I am an illustrator and artist! My work varies from watercolour and digital illustration to paper sculpture and clay – most recently I have been making miniature clay hands! I do all sorts really, so it’s safe to say that I am a curious creative and I often really struggle to pin myself down to one particular craft. But, the way I see it, why bother? life’s too short not to have a go at as much as possible.

With that curiosity, coupled with an excitement to get us creatives talking, I cannot wait to get Crambling and I hope you’ll join me!

Who is Cramblings for?

Well, anyone! Cramblings is a place to chat to creatives from the broadest range possible: from textiles to theatre, painters to printmakers, ceramicists to content creators, musicians to make-up artists.

If, like me, you are curious about all things creative then you will be right at home here.

What else can I expect from Cramblings?

On top of interviews with creatives, you can expect tutorials and ‘how-to’s’ with materials and processes, as well as articles on some bigger topics around being a creative in the modern world; from imposter syndrome, sustainability in art materials, to being an artist on social media. I might even throw a little bit of poetry into the mix occasionally!

Does all of that sound good to you? Then you’d better make yourself at home.

Lets get ready to Cramble.
