I'm a Maker Because...
Jessica Brewer interview
What inspires you to keep making things?
"Life. Every living thing I encounter. People, plants, birds, streams, everything breathes life into my weaving."
What one piece of advice would you give to other makers?
"Be true to what you are doing. You can easily get lost in comparison, don’t derail yourself like that. Keep doing whatever sets your soul on fire."
