Ep.54: Helga Jiang from PuddingFishcakes about art and craft communities on YouTube

By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Nov 17, 2017 •  Interviews

Helga is the founder and ‘chief crafter’ of PuddingFishCakes.

PuddingFishCakes was born out of a love for DIY crafts and polymer clay.

Ever since its inception, Helga has been making video tutorials in an effort to bring the joy of polymer clay and crafts to other crafters like herself. Five years later, she’s done just that. With over a quarter million subscribers, she’s brought a community of crafters together to learn from each other and celebrate the craft.
