Hey there! I’m Perrie, the fibre-arts face and owner behind the quirky world of the handmade business called Mintilla!!
A fibre artist, crochet designer and illustrator, I also love anything handmade.
Based in the beautiful city of Worcestershire, UK, I have always had a creative spark to my soul which flourished into secondary school, where I loved all the textiles and the arts based classes- before later leaving the creative world behind to work in healthcare.
I became passionately interested within mental health, and later began teaching arts based groups as part of my job as a therapeutic approach to helping people live a positive life. My creative spark was rediscovered as I began to learn Crochet and the joy it brings,, whilst deeply enjoying sharing my skills in group sessions.
Completely self taught as a fibre artist and crocheter, I later learnt illustration with London Art College; and began creating my own imaginative designs which have inspired many of my own amigurumi characters and patterns!!
In my spare time I still love to create something just for myself or the home, time spent with my husband and children and our two goofy dogs! I’m so happy to be here with Craftucation and the team and look forward to being a part of your creative venture! :)
