About the facilitator:

Zenzero is the brain child of Karen Wright. Crafting has always played a huge part in Karen’s life and she has experimented with a variety of pursuits over the years as trends have come and gone. The daughter of a dressmaker and a photographer, Karen grew up making her own clothes and fashion accessories and later found a lot of satisfaction from producing her own soft furnishings and furniture restoration. Her focus is to simplify and embrace the practice of slowing down. To value and re-purpose items from bygone eras, make carefully considered choices and treasure items that were worth waiting for. She is passionate about our carbon footprint and strives to reuse, recycle and re-purpose whenever possible.
