My name is Judit, I am a Hungarian living in the UK. I am married to a wonderful supporting husband and we have 2 amazing kids. I've spent half of my life playing the violin and finished my studies as a professional musician, I played authentic Baroque music on a 250 years old, restored violin and had an Irish band having lots of fun in gigs. My life turned 360 degrees when I was 21 and my precious instrument was stolen. I didn't find myself for a long time and finally I ended up as a furniture restorer. I love trying myself in every kind of new things including different crafts as well. I was lucky enough to learn a lot from my mom and grandma, such as sewing, cross-stitch and embroidery (traditional Hungarian patterns), and I picked up a lot of other crafts by myself like needle and wet felting, papermache, soapmaking, woodwork, basket making and watercolour painting. A couple of years ago basket making and cane weaving (you know, those intricate rattan seats) became my "job" and I created the WonderWeaver Design brand. As part of this I provide DIY kits, accept commissions, do live demonstrations at fairs, teach at workshops and sell rattan products as well.
