Amplifying Your Artistic Voice
Voice. Story. Connection. This is what my work is about. Helping makers, and larger creative businesses, to be seen and heard. I hold an unshakeable belief in the power of speaking authentically, and for creative people especially it can be transformative. Making Goode is about unlocking that potential.
Exhibiting with Making Goode
An established part of my work involves curating a chosen group of makers for every event run by the outstanding Handmade in Britain. Curated by Dan Goode has been running since 2016 and to date has supported over 100 exceptional UK makers.

What I Offer
Individuals and Small Businesses
A maker’s uniqueness is without doubt their superpower but locating, and then expressing, that uniqueness is challenging.
Whether it be writing a personal story, one-to-one coaching and mentoring, or delving more deeply into a maker’s identity with my “Maker self-discovery” process, I am here to support, to guide and to help people excel.
Practical Support for Makers
The way a maker presents themselves is as important as the work they produce. For makers who struggle with writing text, I provide a copywriting, editing and proofreading service to remove the stress of the written word. My services, which include full website appraisals, are designed to be easy, allowing makers to get on with what they love best: making!
Universities & Larger Organisations
My work transfers easily from the one-to-one setting to the group environment, both in-person and online. I offer cost-effective talks and sessions to help support makers at any stage in their careers, from the student embarking on a life of making to the well-established designer-maker seeking to reinvigorate their business and their general approach.
The Maker Self-Discovery Process
I speak a lot about authenticity and the power of voice. While encouraging others, as I do, to embark on this process, I feel it is important I share my own experience with both. In this blog I detail my (ongoing) journey with authenticity and what the Maker Self-Discovery Process did for me.
