This Thursday we're showcasing one of our very own Makers, Olivia Sanchez of Plume + Pulp! Olivia just joined our team and has begun to start teaching workshops such as Weaving on a Circle Loom, Shibori Dying + much more with us here at Makers Mess! We're super excited to have her and hope you join us for one of her upcoming workshops!
Olivia is a Toronto born, Los Angeles-based crafts(wo)man who lives with her minpin, Nugget and husband, Brian. She attended UCLA and has been a middle school teacher for the last 10 years. Jacqueline-of-all-trades, Olivia has been a self-taught crafter for years, but has only recently started showcasing her work on Instagram and through her website.
As the founder of Plume + Pulp, she creates paper goods, tapestries and offers calligraphy services as well as custom crafts and signage. Since starting her profession as a crafter, she has completed projects and continues to work with companies such as NYX Cosmetics, Kreation Juicery and Surfcore Fitness. Her current crafting obsessions are pointed pen calligraphy, water coloring and fabric art (dyeing, weaving, embroidery). In her spare time, she spends her time eating french fries and practicing hot yoga. When it comes to crafting, she firmly believes, when you can’t decide what to do, do everything.
We're so excited to have her on the MM Team!
