Melba has been learning the art of handmade since she was 5 years old. Self taught in many disciplines she often found herself wanting to learn how things were made from scratch. From soap making to candle making to ceramics and other fine arts she prides herself in having the ability to focus on learning and understanding a skill from the ground up. You may recognize Melba's other culinary artistry in the Woods Canada Dream job campaign where she was hired out of 4k applicants to be an outdoor brand ambassador and explore Canada for 5 months. Her industriousness resulted in a huge fan base eager to learn her bush craft. Her ability to teach different learning styles comes from several years training as a Royal Canadian Air Cadets, through leadership and survival training.
