Meet Mags Woodcock

Crafting runs in my family, both my mum and grandmother were crafty ladies, so you could say it’s in my genes. I loved creating things from an early age and still love to experiment with new techniques. Mixed media, paper crafting, up-cycling and baking are amongst my many hobbies.
I love inspiring others with unusual and different ways to recycle items as well as simple ideas for beginners to try. I adore using texture, dimension and layering in my projects and I find inspiration all around me. I love to use colour combinations from everyday life and the natural world in my work. I run mixed media and paper crafting workshops in and around my local area of East Yorkshire under the name Art ‘n’ About.
I am excited to be part of the Samantha K design team and hope to share some inspiration with you all.

My favourite project from my time on the DT is definitely the under sea scene
I just love the detail on all the MDF , especially the Octopus and Jelly fish.
I love the pale pastel colours and calmness of the whole scene
I think the whole project just seemed to go together so easily.

Hello All,

I posted yesterday on Facebook and since then I have been messaged by a few people asking what i would pick 3D printer wise. So i thought i would share this here and there incase anyone is interested.

These are my opinions only and i would 100% recommend anyone do their own research before purchasing a 3D printer. There are lots of other brands out there, Anycubic and Creality were two other brands i looked at, but for me Elegoo always seem to be slightly ahead or the same specs for less money and they have a great reputation in the industry.

If i couldn’t have got the Saturn, I would have gone for the Mars 2 pro, however the mars 2 is just as good if you want to save some pennies, the main differences between these two, are the pro has a very marginly bigger build area, has air filtration, has aluminum vat and knobs rather than plastic and a few more bits. None affect the quality of the models that come off though as both have the same light source/screen.

I would not go for the Mars (not linked) as the improvements between that and the 2 were quite a jump, including the much better mono screen and its all about the screen with these machines ? (well kinda lol)

I have linked the two mentioned below on Amazon as this is the best price i found, especially as a prime member and today being the last day of prime deals you get a chunk off, in fact with your savings you can get a bottle of resin for the printer and still have change from the normal price
Hope this helps (remember the prime member prices are only whilst prime day is on!)

Mars 2 £200 – £152 if prime member
