A well-crafted history…
In July 2022, it will be ten years since Anna left her job as a teacher of Design and Technology at Selby High School in North Yorkshire. When she embarked on the journey of self-employment, she was not sure where it was going to take her. But she did have a plan and that plan was to be creative and inquisitive about things that can be made with hands.
Since 2012, Anna has enabled hundreds of people to try their hands at a variety of crafts. We have been jewellery making, trying ours pens at calligraphy, glass fusing, leather crafting, willow/ bark/ birch twig weaving, making mosaics, wire sculpting, knotting macrame, wet felting, needle felting, lino printing, enamelling, screen printing, rag rugging, dyeing batik cloth, making natural cosmetics, silk painting, himmeli making…
Crafts as a hobby may have a practical purpose or a purely decorative one. Crafts offer a way to relax after work or a way to keep mind and body active. Crafts can also connect us to our past and to other people. There are so many different crafts to choose from, everybody should find one to suit.
