Sheron runs the Mad Hatters Studio where she leads and hosts a wealth of workshops and events. Her studio is full of treasures, from jars of buttons and baskets of lace, to boxes of recovered papers. A collector of vintage things and ephemera, Sheron is fascinated by the narrative, interest and sentimentality of objects. She is passionate about re-using, re-loving, re-cherishing and re-imagining things that might otherwise be discarded. In our consumer-driven and disposable society, she’s all about fighting back with creativity, and inspiring others to do the same.
