Meet The Team

Introducing the Team

Unravel & Unwind is a not for profit organisation based within INTRA in Rochester.

We are a creative community sharing skills,promoting emotional & social support and self-worth. Our visions is to continue to grow and expand but keep our “family feel” by sharing skills & knowledge in an inclusive and collaborative manner.

Faye – Unravel & Unwind is Faye’s creative baby. Inspired through revisiting crochet 3 years ago. You will often find Faye sitting at a computer wading through the emails, accounts and varying social media posts… and all with a ball of yarn and a hook in her lap. You can see examples of Faye’s work on Etsy and Hooking the Vintage Way.

Mark – Mark is Faye’s better half and a silent director in Unravel & Unwind CIC. When Mark isn’t playing dog sitter and taxi driver for the family he can often be found weaving paracord or building wire coils (it’s just a phase!).

Freya – Eldest daughter to Faye and regular volunteer at Unravel & Unwind when she isn’t studying music or modeling. Freya was the first to embark on the creative journey through sculpting with polymer clay which can be found on Wolfiesworks. Freya helps Unravel & Unwind CIC by managing the Etsy Store which is slowly growing.

Kieran – Otherwise known as Kron or Yeti, Kieran is our resident artist and keeper of the door. You can often find him in his corner of the studio creating stunning oil paintings. Kieran is hoping to start up some tutorial groups this year focusing on how to use different painting mediums.

Riven – Riven is our spark, she is often found holding Faye up and giving her the proverbial kick when Faye is slacking. You will often find the multi talented Riven guiding visitors through the journey of drawing skills and techniques, or hosting make up and special effect tutorials for budding performers.

Susan – Usually found under a pile of shredded pretty papers and pva glue spatula’s, Sue’s ability to transform vintage, dull objects into things of beauty is a sight to behold. Sue is spending her weekends attending craft fairs and markets around Kent promoting herself and our craft drop in facility. You will find Sue care-taking the drop in studio a few times a week.

Dee – Textile artist extraordinaire, Dee has a flare when it comes to fabric manipulation, felting and sculpting with paverpol. So whenever we need any fabric help, you’ll find us chatting with Dee.

Nelly – Nelly came to Faye’s rescue just recently. Nelly found U&U through coming along to Riven’s art classes and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed and informal atmosphere. When Faye put a call out for help with the book keeping Nelly responded straight away. She tells us that she loves numbers and forms. Well, Faye doesn’t so that is rather handy.

Rachel – Rachel is the face behind Bette Love  and loves everything sewing related. She has been running basic, intermediate and advanced dressmaking classes at U&U, passing on her hints, tips, skills and more to all the sewing fans in Kent.

Tina – Crochet mad Tina has only just joined our team helping Faye to get the newsletter out every week. We do this using Skype and Email because Tina is on the other side of the Atlantic. We have been known to spend a lot of time scheduling around time zones, but hey we are getting there and you guys are receiving The Weekly Drop every week.

Suzie – Suzie had been hanging around for 4 years. Loves crochet and polymer clay. Also dabbles in resin. Suzie is now our resident blogger so watch out for updates.
