Starting A Business From My Bedroom
Our student guest Kirsty, gives an insight into starting a small business from her true Newcastle student bedroom...
true Student Living hosts a variety of creative workshops throughout the year such as candle making and calligraphy. Whilst living at true Student this year I started learning hand embroidery during my free time.
There was lots of finger pricking to begin with and ripping out of stitches, but now I am starting to get the hang on this classic art form. Using bright colours and recycled fabrics I am creating bright hoop art and hand-embroidered clothing. Newcastle has been a great city to source denim and clothing with a huge variety of charity shops.
I recently opened my first shop on Etsy and have made a small fortune, and let's face it we're always looking for how to make money as a student.
