Craft Inn Collective

Art & Craft Collectives workshop and shop

What I do:

Craft Inn is fabulous collective of 15 artisans who create art & craft items to sell in our cosy little shop in Ackworth. We offer a friendly and inviting space for the public to visit, sit for a chat and enjoy observing us at each of our individual crafts or join in with small group workshops.

What steps I took to get where I am now:

I took early retirement due to ill health after teaching for 20+ years and sought a working environment that would improve my mental wellbeing. Creativity is the best healer and good for the soul.

What creative opportunities I'm looking for:

Each of our artisans have differing ambitions, from simply fulfilling and funding their own creativity, to those seeking larger commissions.

My proudest moment:

In my business, I feel proudest most days when our customers tell us what a lovely space we have created, what a delight it is to visit and most importantly they can’t wait to come again.

What does Wakefield mean to me?
I was born right here, was educated here and my creative journey began at Wakefield Art College and continued in the Creative and Expressive Arts at Bretton Hall College. I wouldn't live anywhere else in the UK
