About Me

Hello! I'm Ellie, the person behind wee small folk. I am a mum of three who makes all of these creations in and around family life. I have previously trained as a steiner kindergarten teacher where i was introduced to the beautiful imaginative treasures found on season tables in classrooms and simple dolls and toys made with such love and care.  Having always loved stories as a child about nature spirits, fairies and tiny lost dolls I want to evoke some of the same magic, narrative and heart in everything i make. I create monthly collections of seasonal folk following the inspiration of the changing seasons around me.
