I set up Crafternoon to share a love of crafting,
I have a degree in Textile Design with a specialisation in weaving, having graduated in 2001 my degree was 90% practical based and involved 2 years of hand weaving, looking back that was a wonderful luxury to have. For my day job I design everything on a specific weave based software Pointcarre but I felt that I needed to balance that with working with my hands.
I live in East London and I started running work shops in my local pub The Marksman on Hackney Road, from there I have run workshops at festivals, baby showers and hen parties.
In November 2012 my partner Kaz and I had our daughter Penelope and she is already joining in the crafting!
