Work is Waxing

Kahina Grant recorded 05/05/2022

Kahina Grant is the owner of Grants of Leeds. Grants of Leeds started after Kahina had her first child during the first lockdown. She started with the aim of using her chemistry expertise to produce products that made people feel good. Grants of Leeds now sells candles, wax melts and Reed diffusers.

Ever since Kahina can remember she’s always wanted to be a chemist. After 4 years of study, she left university with a Master’s degree in chemistry, unsure what to do, and how to utilise her new powers in a way she was passionate about. Kahina uses her chemistry skills to perfect her products and deliver items that she loves and is excited to share with people. Kahina plans to expand into producing high quality skin care products in the next year.

About the Podcast

Working Hours
The Story of Work in Leeds in the 2020s
What do you do?
Western Studios, Leeds presents Working Hours: a podcast series surveying the people of Leeds on their thoughts and feelings on the topic of work. I want to talk to my city about work. Why do we do it? Do we like it? What could we do differently? What will we? How does work change and how does it change us?
Leeds, the largest city in the largest county on the UK mainland, is a former imperial textile centre and is now a major UK financial centre. This series will document the city’s experiences through Lockdown, Brexit, creeping technological unemployment, new and continuing resource wars, the ongoing dismantling of the welfare state and our accelerating ecological emergency.
If you are in Leeds or from Leeds then help me to reach my target of interviewing 1000 Loiners over the 2020s. Let me ask you, what do you do?
