MAKER SPOTLIGHT: WhisperYell Designs

I am  a bay-area based musician/Optical Sound-Smith, writer, & working-class, JewWitch hard-femme currently living in Oakland, CA.

Growing up in a rural, working class town I learned to make art from any free &/or discarded materials we could come by! All of the things I make now have visible components of both poor/working-class resourcefulness, and queer cultural charm.

I plan to bring to Magic Makers; handmade cat toys with organic, locally harvested cat-nip, hand bound journals & notebooks, light switch covers, coin purses & wallets, letter-pressed cloth patches, hand forged metalwork (combs, forks, spoons)


It’s important that my work be accessible to folx with sparse budgets, so I usually sell things on a sliding-fee scale.

I hope for connection, inspiration, mutual aid, solidarity, allyship, accountability, trust, love in my queer community.  <3
