Show Notes:

Shannon Orr started Clay Paper Scissors studio because of her passion for making things. She’s the ultimate-DIY person, a professional architect raised by a civil engineer. She founded the studio in 2017, and entirely through word-of-mouth has grown her business in just a few short years–including through the pandemic. 

Shannon tells me why she moved to Ridgewood and the early challenges she faced in launching her studio. Her customers range from little kids to teenagers…and even full-grown adults. She talks about growth plans to spread her concept to multiple locations. And she explains how YouTube and TikTok are changing her approach–and how kids get excited about making things.
