At Bonds we love creativity, we love craft and we LOVE fun stories for kids.
Luckily for you, we’ve found all three bundled up together. The story goes like this…
One day Cat Rabbit, the lovely Textile Artist and Designer, was in her workshop merrily working away on her furry felt animal friends when in walks Isobel Knowles, the amazingly talented Animator who loves nothing more than giving life to anything and everything, and they see each other and they both stop…and suddenly! They knew exactly what they had to do; “children’s book?” says one to the other, “children’s book” agrees the other.
And Owl Know How was born!
At Bonds we also love to share stories that inspire, and Cat and Isobel Know How to do exactly that – read on to get your own creative juices flowing and discover an owl-related crafting challenge to keep the kids occupied this weekend!
As a kid, what did you want to be when you ‘grew up’?
Isobel: I never had any intention of growing up.
Cat: Anne of Green Gables.
Do you have any advice for people trying to turn what they love doing into a way to pay the rent?
Isobel: Sometimes plunging into it without much of a safety net is the only way you can know if things will work out ok.
Cat: Know that there is no clear pathway; you kind of have to make your own path.
Who are some other talented Aussies you admire (people who everyone really to needs know about)?
