Meet the Maker – Twin Made

On the run up to our Etsy Made Local event at the Bierkeller, Wood Street, Cardiff on December 3rd we thought we’d tempt you with a selection of some of the 50+ makers that will be at the event.

First up we have Charlotte from Twin Made.  Charlotte, originally from Dorset, has lived in Cardiff for 15 years and runs her business Twin Made from a colourful and creative shipping container at the Bone Yard, Canton.  A ‘twin who creates and makes’, Charlotte has been selling on Etsy for 9 years.


When do you feel the most creative?                          IMG_20171019_073734_097

Normally when I am just about to go to bed.


Besides Twin Made, what else are you known for?

Creative Workshops


We live in such a mass produced, buy-it-now world, why should we continue to buy handmade?

So all us bedroom crafters can eventually give up our day jobs and to see my ‘sold something I made’ dance.

I recently, with a little help, made a pompom cape which is being auctioned off for charity by Lucky Dip Club. I may have to make my own.


Who do you admire in your industry? Awesome and inspiring ladies such as Helen of Nelly’s Treasures, Emily England and Leona from Lucky Dip Club.


What is the one business lesson you wished you hadn’t learnt the hard way?

Do not take commissions just for the money as they are no fun to create.

Fake. Preferably Rainbow
