Join us for an evening with Laura de Barra in conversation with Her’s Niamh Maher to celebrate the publication of Gaff Goddess.
*There will be an opportunity to buy a copy of Gaff Goddess on the night. Laura will be signing copies after the event.*
Laura de Barra is quite simply a Gaff Goddess. Expanding on her popular online home hacks, Laura will teach you how to handle the problems we all encounter in our homes.
Straight-talking and hilarious and packed with Laura’s stunning illustrations, her step-by-step guides will prepare you to handle the most common household emergencies with style. From dripping taps to hanging a frame, how best to look after your white goods, how to treat moths, mould and everything in between, and with invaluable design ideas to improve the living spaces in your home, this book is for everyone who has ever wanted to tackle a bit of She-IY without really knowing how.
Ingenious and sure to be an instant household must-have, Gaff Goddess will empower you to make those repairs and rediscover your space saving you time, money and stress in the process.
Laura de Barra is a Cork-born property portfolio developer and illustrator working in the competitive London rental market. She is a regular guest on RTE’s Today with Maura and Dáithí, and also has a regular home-hack column with thejournal.ie. Her Instagram account @lauradebarra is a gold mine of clever repair, décor and She-IY inspiration, and her joyful passion for her work will inspire even the most hesitant tenant or homeowner to discover they really can do it for themselves.
Niamh Maher is the Director of Audio and Video with Her. Having previously worked in radio for 10 years, she made the leap to digital in 2017. With a passion for female-focused content, Niamh created and fronts the Girls With Goals podcast which has been running for over two years.
Niamh owns a gaff but is by no means a goddess with it. She infamously documented an attempt to paint her entire apartment alone in two days on her Instagram account – a task which drove her to complete insanity. She’s looking forward to getting all the tips and tricks from Laura.
