Crafting: A New Inspiration

Hello! My name is Kate Wainwright and I started a new Craft Business last year called ‘The Craft House’

I have always loved making things from being young and enjoy creating new things from old. I was a teacher for over twenty years and in my role I loved creating things with the children in different art forms & materials.

I decided last year to turn my hobby into a business and started my own online craft shop and I also have a craft stall.

I love the freedom and feel-good feeling of crafting in your own time and choosing what you want to make. I also really enjoy recycling and upcycling materials and making something beautiful from something someone else would throw away!

Crafting has opened doors for me to meet new friends, explore skills I didn’t know I ever had, learn how to run a business, appreciate and look at nature in a different way, improve my health & manage my time better.

I love what I am doing now and hope to continue it!
Kind regards

Hi Kate

We love your photos and we are very much behind anyone who creatively recycles and upcycles things that would have been otherwise thrown away.

Thank you for submitting your story and best of luck with your craft business - we'll be adding some of your other photos too, from the bits and pieces you've had from us.
