Wonder Women 170 – Sarah of Maker Monkey Workshop
Sarah is a wife, mom, metalsmith, and entrepreneur. She worked in jewelry design and sculpture for over a decade after graduating from art school. When her first son was old enough, she started letting him play in the studio where he had access to all of her tools. This is where the idea for Maker Monkey Workshop was born. She enjoyed watching her son grow more confident and capable with every strike of the hammer and wanted to give that to other children. In addition to growing confidence, she has a desire to get kids to feel the sensitivity of an artist as much as the strength of a builder without categorizing either as being exclusively masculine or exclusively feminine.
