Hi, thanks for stopping by. My name is Yoko and I am the owner of Collectionaise. I started my creative business in 2019 to share my passion for crafting and to create a safe space for kids and adults around Delft to meet and enjoy playful creative activity together.
Why am I so passionate about crafting? Immersing myself in a creative activity has helped me manage some of the stressful time of my life. In 2017, 3 months after giving birth to my daughter, I was diagnosed with an early stage of cancer. The news combined with the pressure of becoming a new parent hit me hard. To add to my stress, my family and I were in a car accident the following year. Although I am grateful that none of my family members was seriously injured and I am currently healthy, it was a long process for me to handle the experience. Absorbing myself in creative projects really helped me to tackle my anxiety and through Collectionaise, I want to offer a mindful space for people to discover their creativity and find a creative outlet to relax and unwind.
Living in the Netherlands as a foreigner and as a parent can sometimes be quite lonely. Creating a safe space for parents and kids to meet and share their creative energy together is one of my goals. I find it wonderful that there are people from different cultures living in Delft and the surroundings. I always enjoy meeting people from diverse cultural backgrounds and I believe children benefit from interacting with other kids from another cultural background.
Thank you and I hope we can inspire each other to create xx
