Grow – Meet the Maker with Bek Spencer

Rhodesian born, South African raised, and Australian now,  I’ve spent the better part of the last two decades in retail – much of it as a retail planner. I am an incurable maker, and dabbled in drawing, sewing, crochet, knitting, and photography (a great passion from high school), but I’m keen to try it all.  Years ago I started making Christmas baubles in my spare time as gifts and for fun (and out of curiosity of how they are made); and people wanted to buy them.  THEN I saw beeswax wraps online and my first thought was – I need to learn how to make them.  After lots of mess, trials, fails, improvements and learnings I learnt how; and people wanted to buy them.

 

Earlier this year my fabulous husband encouraged and supported me to leave my sensible, number crunching, analytical (soul destroying) job and make a full time thing out of being a maker.  So I did, and now this is my gig – I make beeswax food wraps and covers and I love it!

I’ve been a maker in the making all of my life and happy to have to opportunity to embrace what I love doing – which, quite frankly is a little bit of everything.

 

Bek’s Home Studio is my happy creative place where some of my ideas come to life, and hopefully the home to many more.  I love having the opportunity to share, learn and collaborate and look forward to more opportunities in the future.
