Hello, I'm Emma.
I started making pinatas for friends and family a few years ago. After a childhood spent cutting up boxes and turning them into things, it's no real surprise that I now make pinatas for a living!
During the first lockdown in 2020 I needed a project to keep my hands and mind busy, so I decided to start making pinatas that celebrate everyday life in the Southside of Glasgow. I decided to keep an online record of my completed pinatas, so started @southsidepinatas on Instagram.
What was a little personal project, steadily grew into something much bigger. I now make custom pinatas for the lovely people of Glasgow (and sometimes much further afield) to help them celebrate all sorts of occasions. I couldn't be happier!
