How it Works
The owner of HelloHandmade and her dream has had to evolve over the years.
1984 - Dara was born and grew up in a very artistic family, dreaming of art as a career.
2009 - Dara opened a pottery and glass fusing studio in Carson City called Make it Yours!
A dream come true!
2012 - She followed her husband to Reno and had to close the studio. She kept all her supplies in hopes of opening again.
2017 - With her divorce finalized and her new single parent status, she knew she could not afford a mortgage and a commercial lease. So, the search began for the perfect house...a house that fit her families needs and also had a large enough studio space with its own entrance.
2018 - She found and moved into that perfect house and began planning.
2019 - HelloHandmade was born and had it's first class in February 2019. Another dream come true!
"HelloHandmade studio is everything I imagined it would be.
It has a creative, intimate, laid back vibe and is ever evolving as I add new art mediums and classes.
It's a perfect start to my new chapter and I hope you will join me." - Dara
