About Pip

 

pip lincolnepip lincolne 2
Welcome to Pip Lincolne’s blog Meet Me At Mike’s, a sometimes daily dose of happiness and inspiration.

Pip Lincolne is a Melbourne based writer and crafter. She’s published five books about creativity and making things and she would like to write a whole bunch more. She’s Frankie’s craft contributor too! She has three kids and a love of toast and tea. Pip likes to make and write every single day. 

In 2016, Pip was part of the activities surrounding Ai Weiwei and Andy Warhol’s exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. She ran five days of kids’ workshops – and helped thousands of families make Wishing Flowers.

Pip was Etsy’s Creative Courage Mentor in late 2015 – mentoring hundreds of creatives keen to build or improve their Etsy stores and creative lives.

Pip’s exhibited at Wangaratta Regional Gallery (The PomPom Diaries) and has undertaken a weekend residency and workshops at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery.

Pip co-hosts Crafternoons with Clare Bowditch on 774ABC (Melbourne radio) on a semi-regular basis!
