The Keynko Collective is a family with eclectic tastes and pastimes. We have knitters, crafters, petrol heads, geeks, mountaineers, ballet dancers, musicians, a branch office in Scotland, another on the Welsh Borders and affiliate members spread around the country.
Teaching, nursing, camping, climbing mountains, being creative and enjoying life as much as we can!
So this is us – Jiminy Spudrocket and the Wondernuggets
There’s me, (Mumsickles) With me it’s all about hoarding beautiful fabric, never happier than when I’m sat in front of the sewing machine or when I have knitting needles or crochet hook in my hands ! I love to try new crafts as the cupboard full of half finished projects will tell you. I love the opportunity to hunt through charity shops looking for unwanted treasures, a hobby I’m proud to have passed on to my children! I miss having small people around, so regularly borrow other peoples.
There’s him (Badger) And as far as he’s concerned it’s all about the games and which ever one he’s obsessing about . Whether it’s sewing , leather crafting and woodwork for his latest Re-enactment or Live-roleplay interest . Modelling , painting and planning new armies and scenery for his miniature gaming . Writing plot and character backgrounds for tabletop role-playing or researching the best ways to get the most out of whichever computer game has taken his fancy . Yep it’s definitely all about the games and making lots of stuff and mad plans !
There’s Splosh who with the help of his glamorous assistant (Irish baby) runs our Scottish branch office. With him it’s all about the mountains, and the animals, and the bicycles and more mountains ! He is keen to share his passion for the outdoors and wildlife with everyone.
There’s Irish Baby, with her it’s all about the music, our own fiddle playing genius, but also mountains, bicycles and shoes !
Not ours by birth, but ours by choice – and god help her for having taken on this bag of crazy!
There’s Bernard, just finishing up at uni and about to enter the world of work! What can I say about her, dance, shoes, wide open spaces and being with the people she loves, just about sums her up really!
We are all passionate about our work, about social justice and about making the world a better place for the next generation.
And whether it’s teaching them or nursing them, we all work with children
(that is when we not behaving like big kids of course!)
