Shannon held a Creative Conversations evening where lots of like-minded women could come together and be creative. On the night she taught me to knit and due to her fabulous tuition I was able to pick it up really quickly and by the end of the evening I had knitted a beautiful heart. She is extremely talented and her passion for making things really shines through in her teaching. I am looking forward to more creative nights with her x

Shannon did a pom-pom garland craft for my 11 year old daughter’s birthday party. Shannon was fantastic! She was calm and patient, answering lots of questions and requests for help. The kids made great pom-poms and Shannon even inspired some of the adults to get involved too. Highly recommended, thank you!

I bought a beautiful cactus with yellow flowers for my mum who is in a nursing home. A wonderful gift as flowers need watering and die fast but a knitted cactus plant will last for ever and is also very tactile.

Reclaim your CREATIVITY!

Mockingbird Makes is unique in that I offer a bespoke service, co-creating alongside my clients (partners, really).   

I, founder Shannon Reed, strongly believe that in society we outsource our creativity too easily, letting ourselves be led by fashion and trends and giving away parts of our identity and individuality, which can slowly, but surely erode our happiness.    

It is my mission to give back that power to everyone I work with thus helping to enrich the lives of the people I meet and inevitably becoming more enriched myself  - it's a selfish endeavour really!    

I do this by creating gorgeous handcrafts to your exact design or teaching you to do this yourself. Whether it be your winter hat or heirloom blanket, pom-pom flowers or favourite cactus, you imagine, Mockingbird  Makes, you enjoy!   

I also speak on Creativity for Wellness and host a nourishing women's ending called Creative Conversations to connect us all with our innate creativity as a means to helping us thrive instead of just surviving.

Email me for any enquiries, to share pictures of your latest makes or just to say hi!
