Craftkits was born from a love of making things and sharing that creative process.
Based on the West Coast of Scotland. I aim to create a craft course experience at home. Making something in the relaxed atmosphere of your own home can be a great way to bring some mindfulness into your life.
I do my best to source as many materials from the UK as possible and I am also working towards making the materials and packaging more eco friendly.
I've not had the opportunity to make the wreath yet but have looked at the kit, plus the detailed instructions, and can't wait to have a go. Very excited to try a new craft and everything is good quality.
Response from Craftkits:Thank you for your lovely review! Hope you enjoy making your kit when you get the chance.
The Willow arrived well packaged, and are of good quality. However, I found the video very frustrating as there was no commentary. It was like a silent movie, with pointing gestures to indicate where willow needed to go, and at times the tutor had her back to the camera obscuring the process. It would have been really useful to have had hints and tips during the weaving demonstration to help improve technique, and correct problems if they occurred. The plastic envelope for soaking the willow also leaked, but I was able to seal this. Perhaps soak the willow for a day or so longer to improve flexibility. I was pleased overall with the finished obelisk, and look forward to improving my technique with the remaining two.
