We recently talked with mudputty host Samara, an amazing young women.
Here's an wonderful insight into Samara's beautiful world of Fairy House or Trolls Cave Workshops
Why are you passionate about your class, and where did your passion stem from?
Now 18, I have never been academic but I always loved craft as a child so my mum encouraged me in this area and my friends and I used to spend hours making whimsical pieces of fairy twig furniture and then fairy houses. Through hours of loving our crafting we built strong friendships & relationships and developed our imaginations and skills in ways that don't seem to happen so much anymore. And we made some of the most beautiful craft items that a child can ever make. I think for our parents it was also a walk down memory lane for them, back to a time when fairies were real and life was simpler.
Tell us more about your class?
Children will create one of the most beautiful craft items they will ever make. Their parents will be amazed and so happy too. And the fairy houses are durable so will provide many hours of play and children can even make a whole fairy village of different houses once they make their first one. The fairy houses are also a great place to leave lost teeth for the tooth fairy.
What makes your class extra special?
The Sunshine Coast Daily called me the Coast's fairy princess and the children do think I am a fairy princess. I wear my beautiful fairy ball dress, weaved by spiders webs and I was also named as a Top 10 Finalists at the 2018 Miss World Australia national finals.
What will the children think, feel, and remember about your class?
The children always love the class and love the fairy house they have made. Many parents and grand parents email me later to thank me for giving their child such a wonderful experience & for the beautiful fairy house their child created. For parents who book a fairy house birthday party, all the children make and love the fairy house they create and can take home, so they get a wonderful memento of the party and parents feel great about giving so many of their child's friends such a wonderful experience.
What are you looking forward to the most when it comes to running your classes that people can book through mudputty.com?
I love seeing the joy that children and their parents experience when they come to a fairy house class with me.
