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've loved developing my pinata style over the last couple of years, and realistic pinatas with a high level of detail are definitely my 'thing'. I especially love making faces.
I couldn't be happier!
