Madi Tooze is venturing to her first market and wants you to buy her designs.
Madi’s mother, Vicki, said the business gave Madi an opportunity to be a productive part of the community.
She said the concept of starting a small business came from Madi decorating a cake for her aunty’s birthday.
Madi’s designs are influenced by music artists, including Katy Perry and Pink.
“We transferred to using clay and we developed tools to assist her,” Vicki said.
“She loves to paint and roll the clay.”
Vicki said her daughter was changing the perception of previous generations.
Madi will be holding a stall at Markets by the Lake this Saturday at Apex Park from 9am to 2pm under the name Madi T Designs, with a variety of Christmas designs available.
The Leisure Company helps Madi design her goods as well as Intereach Wagga.
