Maker's bio

Where it all began … I first learnt to crochet as a child and spent hours and hours making, sewing, knitting and learning every new technique possible in art, craft and design. After a degree in Graphics and with 16 years experience teaching Textiles, Graphics, Art & Design and Design & Technology I strongly believe in developing my own practice to be the best tutor I can be. I am continually inspired by my students of all ages so it's definitely and 2 way street!

Annika reviewed: Silver Clay Jewellery - Beginner - 3 Hours - One to One

"Fantastic experience, it’s like magic watching a grey clay turn into solid silver jewellery. Rachel’s workshop is a treasure trove of amazing things. She was a great teacher, very knowledgeable and explained everything clearly. My friend and I, who did the course as part of a ‘mums on the run weekend’, were so pleased with the things we made. We’ll definitely be recommending it to others. "

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thank you so much for the lovely comments, so kind of you to take the time to review. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you both and I was so impressed by the quality of your silver pieces. Well done! I've already told Stu about 'Mums on the run!'. Love it. All the very best. Rach "

Emma reviewed: Crocheting - Beginner - 1 Day - One to One

"This was the second course I have done with Rach, and she was just as lovely, kind and patient as last time. Rach explains everything very clearly, even for beginners, and is flexible with her approaches. I can't wait to do some more crafting with her! "

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thank you so much for your lovely review Emma. So kind of you. It was really lovely to see you again and to meet your Mum. You both picked up the skills so quickly. It would be so lovely to see you again for more crafting! Look forward to it! All the very best. Rach "

Amal reviewed: Artist Retreat in the Shropshire Hills - 5 Days & 5 Nights - One to One

"I had an amazing 5 days with Rachel...didn't want to come home! My intention was to explore some new crafts that I could do from home that wouldn't require large, noisy or expensive equipment, and to see if I was any good at any of them. After discussing the possibilities with Rachel, I went onto learn a load of new skills; concrete and pewter casting and letterpress printing, relearnt how to sew and had my first proper lesson on how to draw. I'd always said that I wasn't an artist, but with Rachel's genuine encouragement and patient guidance, I came away feeling confident to take more steps and develop my skills and also thinking that perhaps there was an artist inside me after all!"

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thank you so much for the lovely review Amal. It really was such a lovely week and you did brilliantly with all the crafts you explored. I can't wait to see what you go on to create next! All the very best. Rach "
