Episode 157: Craft Special with Emma Scott-Child

Episode 157: Craft Special with Emma Scott-Child

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

If you hate doing craft, this episode is for you! Emma Scott-Child has written a brilliant book for people who are short on time, don't like mess, and don't have £500 to spend in Hobbycraft. She tells us all about it. 

We also discuss her career, which has spanned everything from working for Damien Hirst to designing erotic magazines and dog poo bags. Other topics include what it's like to run a business with your husband, and how to cope when your youngest child starts school.  

Emma's amazing book, Quick Crafts for Parents Who Think They Hate Craft, is out now. Visit her website at and follow her on Instagram @emma_scottchild.
