Hello! I’m Moira and I founded Craftiosity. I had a career in a very lovely (but stressful) job, and I’d often turn to a variety of different crafts as a way to unwind. As the years went by, I took the opportunity to make the ‘day job’ part time and work alongside as a designer and maker, creating work to sell and teaching workshops.
Two things I noticed as I taught the workshops was how far people were travelling to get there, and that often folk felt they weren’t that creative. How many people were missing out – through geography or not having the chance to ‘have a go’ – on learning new crafts and the peaceful magic that descends as you focus on making?
I started Craftiosity because I wanted to make it easy for you to be creative, to try new things, to learn in your own time, and to make something you really want to have or use. I have a lovely small team who help me design, create and deliver the kits.
This is all about you-time, so grab a cup of tea and a biscuit (or two!), open your box and let’s begin…
