Laura Parker, Freckles on the Inside

This episode of The Big Chat is proudly sponsored by Humor Street Art.

In this episode of The Big Chat Castlemas Takeover, Nicole talks to Laura, founder of Freckles and The Inside café who is running workshops and a stall here at Castlemas! Laura is an epic lady who has a real passion for crafting and community. She prioritises making crafting accessible to everyone, bridging the gap between girls and boys crafting as in her own experience she has found craft much more geared towards girls than boys. The Inside Café is somewhere she can not only serve delicious food and yummy coffee but also a place where she can hold wonderful crafting workshops.

Castlemas 2021 is a 10-day event at Tonbridge Castle running from 10th – 19th December. There’s Mistletoe Town where you can do some shopping, Santa’s Grotto, Jingle Bell Bar, Santa’s Workshop and of course the Igloo Theatre where you can watch live performances!

We would also like to thank Bod and Ted for Nicole’s gorgeous dress! Visit
