Wonder Works Owner Christine Osborne Interviewed for Christian Royal Documentary at Downtown Store
Last Friday, Wonder Works Owner Christine Osborne was interviewed at the downtown Wonder Works store by a national film crew doing a documentary on Christian Royal, a 19-year-old Charleston resident with Down Syndrome who creates one-of-a-kind, beautiful pottery pieces that Wonder Works carries.
Before she co-founded Wonder Works, Christine was an occupational therapist who got her degree because she loved working with people with Down Syndrome. Having a film crew in the store doing a feature on Christian, she says, was a very emotional experience for her as it has brought her journey and professional career full-circle. “There is no way anyone could plan that – it’s a God thing!” she says.
We’ll keep you posted on when Christian’s documentary will be released. We can’t wait to watch the story of one of our favorite local artists!
