A JOURNEY THAT’S BEEN WORTH IT
HERE’S A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME…
Claire Broome – Founder & Craftsman of ToDot Handcrafted Goods Limited.
My career started in pubs, working with my husband. Running busy ones and developing the people that worked for me.
After my second child was born, I took a step back from the commercial world and worked hard to bring my children up. Since then, I have worked for HMRC – balancing flexi-time and the school holidays.
My husband continues to be my rock – even when away on business or waking up (everyone) at some silly time in the morning.
With one child now at university and the other doing her exams, it felt right to do something for myself.
Throughout, my love of craftwork has always been great – from making cards and gifts for those that I love, through to creating things to order for people further afield. In the past few years, my love of designing and making jewellery has become a real passion.
The commute to London has been a long one – but I’ve learnt so many skills from my tutors and have met some great people that have inspired me.
For the past few years, I’ve been attending and learning from many courses along with finding others with similar interests online and across social media.
I’ve taken this further – travelling each week to be to be taught and mentored by tutors that are also experienced crafters themselves.
I return home late that night exhausted, but excited about everything that I’ve learnt. I can’t wait to bring it to life for people to wear.
