My name is Kron the Mad (Kieran to some). I’m an artist working out of Unravel & Unwind. I have also been a volunteer here for a year, which keeps me sane!
Due to the support and encouragement of everyone here I’ve taken the plunge and made the first tentative steps in trying to make a living out of what I love to do. To that end I’ve recently set up a profile on Redbubble adding my artwork to a wide array of products.
For those of you who receive our newsletter, you might have noticed that Unravel and Unwind has a new volunteer: Nelly… That would be me, so I thought I would briefly introduce myself to you.
6 years ago, I left my job to look after my daughter, Chloé. The last couple of years (as Chloé started going to pre-school and then school) I have discovered my love for arts and crafts. I mean, my looooooooove for arts and crafts: drawing, painting, sewing, knitting, crochet-ing, papiermache-ing, you name it! I constantly seem to have several crafty projects going on. A friend of mine told me about Riven’s drawing class (which I highly recommend whatever your experience in drawing) and that’s how I discovered Unravel and Unwind: a place dedicated to arts and crafts! Yeah!! And here I am! I will be mainly helping with the admin/social media aspect but you’ll probably see me around playing with the sewing machines, the knitting needles, the yarn…. anything I can get my hands on, really.
Hope to meet you soon!
Random fact about me: I love hats, all kind of hats!
This week’s supporter is the lovely Riven. She has been a dedicated member of Unravel since they opened. Riven is a local make up artist that has a passion for cosmetics, she has experience in film, photography and beauty make up as well as special effects. We are delighted that she has agreed to start a make-up session at Unravel each month on Friday afternoons – book now – its very popular!. She is also a talented artist and keeps busy by teaching art classes on Thursdays and Saturdays at Unravel every week. Check out both her Facebook pages for more information about her work.

Some of you may not know this, but Minions are kind of a big deal around here. Not only does (almost) everyone love the little yellow creatures but one of the earliest crochet projects attempted by Faye was the Minion hat above.
I however may have started taking things a little too far.

It’s me, Kron! You know, the Yeti.
I’m here to tell you a little story about my time at Unravel and Unwind.
My own personal story, about me, is a long and boring one of depression and joblessness, so I will mostly skip that part and just cut it down to this. I am jobless, suffering from depression and anxiety, this place has helped me more than any amount of medication (and at times there was a lot of medication).
