My Story



Hi, I'm Claire.  Thanks so much for taking an interest in me and my business.  I founded Claire's CraftHouse in 2013 because I love creating unique things.

The creative spark in me was first ignited by my Mum, when she taught me how to sew at a very young age. She's been a major inspiration in my life and, since then, I've turned my hand to make a whole host of handmade items.

However, my main passion has always lay in furniture refurbishment. As a full-time professional furniture artist, I'm in my element in the studio, with brush in hand; teaching others how to upcycle their furniture pieces on our popular Paint-A-Piece workshops; or providing help and advice on using our paint products in our shop at Coppice Lifestyle & Garden Centre.   

I'm immensely proud of the reputation we've built for both quality craftmanship and trusted customer care, so if you appreciate what we do then please spread the word about us.  Word of mouth from happy customers is how I hope to build Claire's CraftHouse and create more lovely stuff, for more lovely people!
