I’m Lily, based in West Norwood, and I hope to become a proper member soon!
I’m particularly interested in woodworking, and I’d like to learn and practice on joinery/carpentry stuff, to be able to make (nice looking and strong) furniture. I have worked on wood before with the usual hand held tools to build a garden shed and a few shelves, but I’d like to go further and dive into the tenon, mortise and dovetails world! It will also help with building the furniture for the van I will start converting once the paperwork is sorted: I imported the van from Russia and it has not had its DVLA approval yet…
Otherwise I just simply love making stuff and talking about making stuff!
Besides insatiable curiosity about any design/craft/build/fix, I can offer a few skills if anyone is interested: wet and dry felting, crochet knitting, polymer clay jewelry. I also trained as an engineer and grew up in a “make stuff” family, so I’d be happy to be a sounding board for any sort of project. Finally I have some experience in house renovation (and some tools that go with it) so I can contribute to the Arch2 project, especially on the finishing touches - I’m told I’m really good at plastering and skimming!!!
Really looking forward to the open evening on Wednesday 19th and joining the community!
