  • Who are these workshops suitable for?
    Workshops are perfect for absolute beginners, seasoned crafters, and children*. *Boho Saturday Sessions are better suited for children 8+. **Private Sessions are best for younger children, where crafts can be modified and more attention can be given. ***Monday & Tuesday Weekly Workshops, all ages are welcome.

    All materials are provided, plus tea, coffee and homemade cake. Gluten and dairy free alternatives are happily available if requested. You are welcome to bring your own craft embellishments or foraged materials to make it more personal, but is not required.
  • Is there an age limit to your workshops?
    There is no age limit, crafting is for all ages! Each workshop can be easily modified to suit any age or ability, as a Private Session. Although Boho Saturday Workshops are for children 8+, I can happily arrange a Private Session to suit a younger clientele at a more suitable time, where more attention can be given. Monday & Tuesday Workshops, all ages are welcome.
  • What are your opening hours?
    Island CraftWorks is not a “shop” in the traditional sense of the word, as we are a craft studio. We are open by appointment only, but if you happen to be walking by, and see our lights on, please feel free to come in and say hello! We do have weekly events and you will find us open every Saturday, for Boho Saturday Craft, 10am-12pm, and every Tuesday, for Coffee, Chat & Craft, 10:30am-12pm. Feel free to pop in then! If you are making a special trip to Ryde to come check us out and enjoy a tour of the studio, please email to ensure availability. I’ll be sure to put the kettle on and save you a bit of cake!
  • Do you need any experience to attend a craft workshop?
    No experience is needed, absolute beginners are most welcome. Feel safe, and be guided step-by-step. Here at Island CraftWorks, we say crafting is about the journey, not the destination. There is no pressure to "get it right" and no one gets “left behind”. Crafting is about what brings you joy. You will leave with a tremendous sense of pride and something truly beautiful at the end of each workshop, I promise!
