The Crafthouse is a newly revamped independent art and craft studio in south west London offering you a fusion of creative social art and craft with a unique twist.
We wanted to create a vibrant place that would blend beautiful things with amazing creativity. Attention to the important details, personal attention and a nurturing spirit to allow freedom to explore, discover, learn, have fun and enjoy oneself, no matter how young or old!
We wanted to bring something inspiring and fresh to the market whilst helping to enhance our community and nurture the idea of providing people with the skills to hand make things. We both have a passion for art and craft and love the fulfilment that making things brings. This inspired us to create a place that would make art and craft accessible to everyone.
About Fiona Harvey
Owner of The Crafthouse, Mum, Designer & teacher of sewing and craftiness to children of all ages!
After years spent in media running high profile events, Fiona started searching for alternatives that would combine her love of creative practice and children. Something that would bridge the gap between work and home and readdress the balance of life!Sewing & crafting since childhood, Fiona headed back to ‘school’. She completed her studies at The London College of Fashion & Textile Design as well as a masterclass in printing. She has since been commissioned to run craft – based events for The Affordable Art Fair, Channel 4 and Kew Gardens. As well as teaching classes each week in her studio, Fiona also teaches in schools and colleges across London.When she’s not running press days or sharing her contagious love of making with children & adults alike, Fiona works as a textile artist on a new range of works soon to be launched on her Etsy shop site or one can find her sipping a cuppa whilst walking the dogs in Richmond Park, dreaming up the next project to be made of course!
Our studio is a happy buzzing place where everyone is welcome to come and try new things learn new skills. You will leave inspired to go on creating at home. Our extensive range of workshops on offer means that there really is something for everyone; from photography to scrapbooking our workshops combine elements of inspired design with a social element.
