Owner: Yellow Door Studio
I’m a community-driven, pottery mad Aussie, and a mother of four, who accidentally left her front door and found herself in Midlothian. After years of lifelong-learning pottery classes, I took the plunge and established Yellow Door Studio, a home pottery studio specialising in functional bespoke hand-thrown ceramics.
Since February 2019, I’ve been working with other local community groups and volunteers to shape events that are all about the creative arts and how it can benefit our community.
Owner: Complement Entertainment
Co-Director, True and Woke
I’m from Los Angeles and I have lived in Midlothian since 2012. I’m a mum, an event planner, a volunteer school librarian and I have an alter-ego called Miss Sugar Lady DJ.
I saw a post about Made in Midlothian on Facebook. I volunteered to DJ an event and was also given the opportunity to programme the music stage. The community feedback was so great, that our MiM Music Programme is funded in 2020 by the National Lottery Community Fund!
I am excited to see where MiM will go in the future. It’s a wonderful community initiative that I am proud to be part of.
My superpower: Bloody-mindedness!
Owner: Whyte Craft and Buzzy Bees Music
I’m a local girl from Gorebridge, a Mum to two kids and a part-time crafter at Whyte Craft. I am also the singer of musical duo soundLounge, a function band with an acoustic, lounge style.
When I spotted a post about Made in Midlothian, I trundled along to a meeting and I’ve since become MiM Secretary. I love being part of the Steering Group, planning exciting events for the creative arts in Midlothian.
With my background in music and working with children, I created Buzzy Bees Music in 2019 and I love every minute of.
