Nicki Gunn CRAFT TEACHER
I am a trained teacher with many years experience of inspiring young and old to embrace learning something new. I have crafted all my life and studied Art at University focusing on textiles. Inspired by young and old; I named my business after my late Grandma.
Where did it all begin?
Having worked for many years in high pressure roles in 2018 I did a sweep round my house collecting all the unfinished craft projects I had really enjoyed starting but had never found the time to complete and made the life changing decision to start my dream business. Life can become so fast paced we forget to take time to focus on the things we most enjoy; like creating beautiful things with our hands.
I started teaching 60 minute WORKSHOPS locally including all my favourite crafts. The aim being to teach people that by setting aside a little dedicated time with the right guidance they can succeed at a new craft and complete a beautiful project they can be proud of.
Workshops were in demand and I was now delivering two evening classes a week; visiting a host of daytime venues and offering private CRAFT PARTIES and corporate crafting.
On the verge of a pandemic I launched Daisy's 60 Minute Craft Kits - Project of the Month. Many of my clients had requested access to my projects in this way and it felt like the right time. I wanted to ensure that I was still on hand to guide clients so provided a monthly live broadcast to accompany each kit so that they could interact with me and get the very best from their kits.
Lockdown for Covid19 began and it was important for me to keep everyone crafting. It is such a mindful activity and I knew it would help me through the coming months so I wanted it to help others too. Daisy's Craft Members Club was born providing clients with the opportunity to learn a new craft every month making the most of their very own craft stash!
Workshops were moved online to keep everyone safe and to keep crafting.
Well what a year! Face to Face Workshops return with caution and some socially distanced at venues appropriate to be Covid Safe!
With the success of Craft Kits I moved production to a Craft Bundle system. There is only me and manning the process every month was just too much! So the Summer Bundle was born and well received - Thank you!
I made the move from Dorset to Herefordshire and I'm looking forward to letting Daisy's 60 Minute Crafts spread her wings!
Setttled now in Herefordshire but still traveling to Dorset for seasonal Craft Days, Daisy's 60 Minute Craft's is focusing on Making time to craft with the promotion of our 60 Minute Kits and the launch of The 60 Minute Craft Club.
There is also the introduction of MacrameByNicki to the website; teaching you to knot beautiful projects via video tutorials.
Saw Daisy's 60 Minute Crafts exhibit at The Creative Craft Show at the NEC for the very first time and is looking forward to returning as a specially selected educator in March 2023.
Daisy's 60 Minute Crafts was proud to meet Theo Paphitis and receive a Small Business Sunday Award in recognition for it's success!
SO, I CAN'T WAIT FOR YOU TO JOIN ME CRAFTING...
