Craftable is a community not-for-profit group to promote sociable crafting for those who find it hard to leave their homes or feel isolated because of long-term physical or mental health conditions.
The aim of Craftable is to recognise that crafting isn’t, as often depicted, a solitary activity carried out in isolation. By setting up this group we hope to reach people struggling to leave their homes or talk to other adults, to give them a reason to come out once a week, to learn a new skill or practise an old one.
Craftable is run by Jen Snow and Christine Davenport. We each have our own physical and mental health issues, so understand how difficult it can be to join a new group, or even just leave the house.
The best way to contact us is by email – the inbox is monitored regularly and you will normally receive a reply within 24 hours.
