ABOUT PECULIAR PLUTO

Hi,

I’m JoJo. I’m Passionate about sewing and crafting​, I'm twenty years old and live in the southwest of the UK. My mum taught me how to sew when I was eight and to be honest I haven't stopped since! My first big project was a gorgeous lilac dress (which mum helped me sew), and from there I proceeded to continue my sewing journey both at home and throughout education. I took GCSE textiles at Huish Episcopi Academy, where I created corsets and tutus (I love ballet, and have been dancing since I was 3). In year 11 I passed with flying colours and went on to study a Level Three Diploma in Art and Design at Strode College. I got to study art in all forms but remained primarily drawn to textile based work. Unfortunately I never got to finish the course, my mental health got in the way and I felt it best to take a break. After a year away from creating and taking some time to recover, I came back enjoying sewing more than ever and ready to launch my own brand.

Since starting Peculiar Pluto I have grown so much as a person. I have rediscovered my passion for sustainable creativity and am even contemplating studying a textile degree within the next couple of years. Doing something I love so much has grown my confidence and greatly improved my mental health. I have always dreamed of having my own shop and it wouldn't have been possible without your support - Thank You!​
