talks & interviews

Head & Hands’ founder, Amanda Wayne, was inspired to create her business following her own health and wellbeing challenges, living with a chronic illness since the age of 16. When battles with Crohn’s Disease meant she could no longer make the 9 to 5 work, she was forced to slow down and make time for self care. In doing so, she discovered ‘the art of slowing down’. Her previous work in design and community arts education inspired her to set about sharing this through her curated store and programme of workshops.

Amanda is available to speak at events, on podcasts, or in the media.
