My name is Agatha Wang and I was born in the state of Pahang in Malaysia.
My high school nickname is Dolphine because I have always loved dolphins.
I studied my undergraduate in Marine Science in Sabah before coming to the UK and eventually completing my masters at Cardiff University in Computer Science.
I have always supported green products and always believe that "a small change can make a big difference". I am re-using all possible materials as my green packaging for my handmade crafts. I believe you can make a difference too by supporting the concept.
Since my first workshop in 2011 my humble beginnings as a new found hobby crafting for friends and for fun quickly turned into accepting commissioned work to now taking the first few steps to becoming a fully fledged online business where I still continue to “roadshow” from time to time (If you want to read about the more indepth crafting journey, read my artist talk for Malaysia Clay Art).
