The Crafthood are a female led duo of Sharon (L) and Kay (R), we are passionate makers focusing on the 'feel good' factor that comes with modern craft. We place value on creativity and love to see it's benefits on wellbeing.
Having left careers in the Probation Service, we wanted to change direction whilst making the most of our experience and staying true to our values. And so, in September 2016 The Crafthood was founded with an aim to bring the joy of craft to the people and homes of the North East.
Durham based crafter and co-founder, Kay is a relentless maker and craft magpie with a love of hand lettering, wool, interiors and all things plant based and floral. Kay is an enabler and a feeder, in other words, she loves to guide people into learning new crafts whilst also giving them cake. Kay has a huge desire to make modern crafts accessible and spread the craft joy.
Newcastle based creative and co-founder Sharon, is inspired by the golden era, new wave crafters & nature in equal measures. Always on the look out for something unique. There is a special place reserved in Sharon's heart for hand lettering, technicolour and chocolate. A firm believer in the benefits and power of learning, caring and sharing.
