Hello and Welcome!
I'm Ellie Beck, a textile artist & creative maker. I work primarily with natural fibres, botanical dyes & an experimental process towards my practice. I'm self taught in my arts & crafting practice - and am keen to continue developing this process. I'm also a writer, with words & thoughts slipping from my mind. 

Why Patreon? Being an artist is in my blood, I couldn't not do it, but sometimes the process and the creating takes more time that the results of the outcome. My hope is that you see deep value in my work, and are in the situation to financially contribute to my practice. In exchange I've got lots of gifts as a way of expressing my immense gratitude

By having your support, I don't have to stress about the financial aspects of online marketing, or worrying about the bills being paid, and or my kids needing things. Being a self-employed artist (my husband is too!), means we put everything into what we make, yet sometimes don't get the financial stability needed as parents.

Who am I? I'm a creative maker and mama to 3. We live in the rainforest in Northern NSW, Australia. I teach online and in real life workshops, primarily in textiles and sustainable practices; Natural & Botanical Dye, Loom Weaving, Basket Weaving, Slow Stitch, etc...
I post daily beautiful, inspiring images to my Instagram account @petalplum, as well as words, tutorials, recipes and interviews to my blog. 
I'm also a big advocate of Slow, Intentional & Creative Living and share my viewpoint on this topic through my Instagram, blog, and newsletter. 

By supporting me and my family - you'll allow us to continue along this path of sharing our slow living life, our experiences being creatives, as well as living a sustainable life in the forest. I create workshops and events to bring a connectedness, I share thoughts and ideas on living a more full and natural life. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

UPDATE 2019 :: this year I am writing my book, called Creating Slow, that will be about crafting and slowing down, and living a gentler life with making as part of your days. I am also working towards a solo exhibition for 2020 (and would love a smaller one this year too, if things evolve that way). 

Your Patreon support will assist me in buying materials (fabric and such), but mostly in being able to spend my time practicing my art, stitching, dyeing, and writing without having to think about the income aspect of it all. I will have more (financial) freedom, with your assistance. 

With deep deep thanks, Ellie

Goals
72% complete
Reaching this goal will mean I have time for my writing - which is becoming more and more important for me each day.
To sit and write 500+ words a day, without having to think about the financial implications is my goal. 

I can also continue to spend time on my creative textile work, as a developing art practice, working towards pieces for an exhibition.
