We welcome Heidi Helyard, Make Good Things Happen Ambassador!  

Join us for a chat with Heidi Helyard as we discuss the highs and lows of working remotely and how she turned making into a business.  

Heidi has built a successful jewellery label around the polymer clay medium, and talks about how Renee and Angela, her mentors, have supported her through various maker milestones.  

Our journey with Heidi Helyard has included upgrading her Etsy shop to a new Shopify website, an e-news strategy that evolved into a subscription service, Studio Scraps, brand development and communications, as well as her application for and subsequent debut stall at Finders Keepers.

Of course one of the absolute highlights of working with Heidi was watching her create her very first book! From creating the concepts to writing tutorials and photographing everything herself, Heidi has cemented her position as a globally recognised polymer clay extraordinaire!

Watch our chat with Heidi Helyard, and be inspired!
