Rebecca CasoN

Rebecca Cason has been working in the not-for-profit arts sector for almost 20 years specialising in arts management and creative enterprise. Always a maker at heart she runs her small business 'edward & lilly', is the organiser of the Brisbane chapter of Brown Owls craft group and volunteers her time to a number of arts, cultural and community service organisations.

The Nest embodies everything that I am passionate about. We are in a rapidly changing world where old values and traditions need to be revisited not to preserve the past, or to fight change, but to enrich the future for our children. The “handmade not manufactured” design revolution can be seen within the resurgence of the Vintage, Retro and Boho lifestyle and culture. Unlike previous generations, craft today, is not born out of a social and economic necessity, but from the need to find an emotional connection.

My creative practice focusses on skill sharing and producing work for my handmade business edward & lilly. My goal is to increase my use of sustainable materials and methods one step at a time and to inspire others to do the same. It’s important to support authentic handmade wares and I love sharing my own creative skills through workshops and providing socially inclusive opportunities for people to get together and make.
