A tale of two businesses and how I got started
Hello, I’m Hannah! I run Wild Folk and Enamelware Events, which you can read more about here. Now a little about me… I’m creative, ambitious and I love getting out on adventures. Lately it seems I’ve been craving much of what was natural for me as a teenager – things like regular runs in the woods, daily drawing for my art projects and journalling. Since then, I gained a degree in English with Creative Writing, lived and volunteered in Argentina for one year, self-published a book in Oxford, had jobs working in the community and in youth work. Putting all those things together, and a recent interest in foraging (I mean, food for free, what’s not to love?!) and being a total recipe fanatic, it makes sense really that I’ve started this business in offering creative outdoor events.
Currently, I have one main employed job alongside my two businesses.
About the name Wild Folk: I feel this captures the various sides of what I’m hoping to achieve – community, like-minded people coming together, traditions, folk music, poetry and art, a wildness, getting outdoors and many more lovely things!
