ABOUT ME

Hi! I’m Penelope Quinn and I’m London-based content producer, blogger, presenter, pin-upper, crafter and upcycler.

I believe we can all create beautiful, practical pieces with a bit of know-how and imagination. Upcycling not only saves money and the environment, but it also allows us to re-ignite our creativity by reimagining every day things. Whether it’s a jar, a pair of jeans or packaging you were about to throw in the bin, it can all be transformed into something useful and beautiful.

For the last eight years, I’ve been dedicated to breathing new life into unloved items with minimum effort and cost. To date, I’ve created over 54 videos for The Body Shop as their official upcycling expert, editorial how tos as Craft Expert for The Lifestyle Channel, regularly host craft workshops and work as an account manager for London Craft Club and previously performed television appearances as an ambassador for Australian nation-wide craft store Spotlight.

WHAT IS UPCYCLING?

Upcycling is transforming unwanted materials and packaging into something useful and beautiful. It’s a

creative solution to help reduce single-use plastic and packaging ending up in our landfills – and uses far

less resources than recycling. All you need is creativity and some know how! My mission is to help reignite

the spark of ingenuity from a ‘mend and make do’ generation and help consumers see packaging

in a whole new light.

  • Raises awareness about sustainability with a creative, hands on approach
  • Encourages your audience to purchase and personalise packaging
  • Creates engaging, shareable content
  • Is a unique and fun way to engage staff, media and consumers
  • Gives a second life to packaging
