Hurrah for all the wonderful women and men who work their socks off to create unique, beautiful and quirky items to brighten our homes and bring a smile to our faces.

 

These wonderful producers pour a great deal of time and care into their designs and constantly show us new ways to elevate the ordinary and everyday into something special. At the Craft House we love to celebrate our makers and we feature one of these hugely talented people in store and online once a month.

Craft Hero Eleanor Maw

Eleanor, of www.elmrocks.com describes herself as a multi-crafter and can't remember a time when she wasn't picking bits of thread off her jeans or finding glitter in her hair. Fibre crafts are her favourite and she loves making clothes for herself and her daughter and even once knitted her dog a jumper, although he didn't like it at all. Eleanor was taught to knit and sew by her Mum and Grandma and used to spend Summer holidays making clothes for her dollies, designing and making teddy bears and trying very hard not to get sunburn.

 

Eleanor studied textiles at A-Level, where her natural tendency to over-achieve found her frantically hemming the 1870s walking dress she made for her coursework, complete with corset and bustle, sitting on the floor in the common room, the morning it was due in. She did not learn her lesson and often has many projects on the go at once.

 

Eleanor believes in the ability of creativity to soothe, inspire and empower and has taught classes as part of corporate wellbeing events, bringing her unique enthusiasm and boundless encouragement to groups of all abilities. She is going to be teaching some lovely classes at The Craft House - check out our Events and Classes page for details. Eleanor has contributed to Caboodle magazine and runs a craft blog at www.elmrocks.com. She eats far too much cake and cheese.
