About Our Studio
I've always had a love for creating, starting from when I was a young girl growing up on Vancouver Island. Some of my favourite childhood memories include creating with my two sisters, mother and nana — yes, our house was always full of strong, creative female energy!
One winter, a few years ago, a very good friend of mine showed me the basics of soap-making. Needless to say, I ran with it! I began making soaps from my kitchen, as a way to focus our energy during those rainy days. Before I knew it, I'd organically grown a full-blown business. Every bar of soap, botanical bath bomb and bottle of plant perfume is carefully made — full of love, and as earth friendly as can be.
I’m so grateful to count myself as part of an incredible group of local, Tofitian female business owners and artisans, who all take home-made to the next level. Hopefully through the Hobbyist, I’m able to pass down that same passion for crafting to my own daughter.
From my hands to yours
At the Hobbyist we believe ‘it’s what’s inside that counts’ so naturally using ethically sourced, plant powered ingredients is the heart of our family business. Our home and body goods are mindfully made by hand in small batches using only environmentally friendly and ocean safe ingredients.
