Here is Part 2 of our ‘Meet the co-founders’ feature, (Part 1 about Claire Riley’s Little Shop of Lathers can be found here). Today we meet co-founder Natalie Entwistle of ‘Handmade by Natalie’ who is based in Apperley Bridge.
Natalie makes a wide range of exquisite items including handmade cards, paper art canvasses, jewellery, wine glass charms and painted glassware. All these items make great use of Natalie’s steady hand and great attention to detail.
Natalie says “After leaving school I went to Art College which was to follow a passion of everything creative. I worked in Mortgages for many years, then had 2 beautiful girls and wanted to work around them. I started making bits and pieces for family and slowly built my hobby into my little empire and now here I am with our biggest venture yet, Our Handmade Collective!”
Here is a photo of Natalie’s beautiful girls which she says give her great inspiration. Pop in and meet Natalie at Our Handmade Collective, upstairs in Handpicked Hall, Grand Arcade, Vicar Lane, Leeds, when it opens on 14th June 2013. Natalie will almost certainly be there ready to help you find and wrap the perfect gift for any occasion!
