Rachel - Owner and Founder of 'Craft My Day'

​Since completing her degree in ‘Costume and Technical effects for the performing arts’ at London College of Fashion in 2001, Rachel worked freelance in the film and events industries for many years before taking a break to be at home with her three children whilst they were small.

She began teaching at a private sewing studio, alongside freelance work and grew to love the rewarding nature of teaching.

​'I can never seem to get enough of learning new skills, which I love to share…'

In 2016 Rachel decided to start up her own Craft studio and began to work with other local artists to create a unique space for people to come and learn a variety of crafts in a fun and relaxed setting. ​ Her passion for textiles and design began during school when she found her own teacher a real inspiration. 'She developed my creativity but also gave me confidence for life. I aspire to recreate that experience, and inspire others to start their own creative journeys.' ​ Rachel qualified as Powertex trainer in 2016 and is also really excited to share this fantastic product.

Rachel believes that all people are creative and with a bit of patience and encouragement can be taught ways to express that innate ability and get a real sense of satisfaction and enjoyment.

Loved this class. Something very therapeutic about acrylic pouring. You choose your colours, then get taught the techniques and then have a go yourself, creating really cool results. Leaving with 3 canvases to put up in the house too. Highly recommend this class!!!

We really enjoyed this class and were delighted with what we produced. Having never done acrylic pouring or used powertex before, it was great to learn how to handle those mediums on a canvas. Rachel is a great teacher. We'll definitely be back to do more classes.

Very interesting and enjoyable workshop! The resulting product of your own design will never disappoint. The process is slightly messy, yet enjoyable to carry on. The teacher offers full support throughout the workshop and provides you with clear instruction on the process. Wonderful experience and beautiful result. Good workshop for you and especially a good gift idea for someone who is in search of inspiration or just like to try out something fun. The gnomes just always end up so cute!

Rachel and her crew are brilliant at teaching you how to use a sewing machine and make some really neat stuff. Our class over-ran but the teacher / instructor just stayed with us and got everyone to the end of their project (Beach Trousers for me). All I need now is to be allowed to go on holiday somewhere!

I loved the acrylic paint pouring class. Loved the process you went through to produce your very own master piece. There is no right or wrong ways of expressing yourself. Thank you to Rachel, who was just fab 🌸

I really enjoyed this class. The teacher was knowledgeable, flexible and patient. There was plenty of time to complete a project, and I made something I really like. Learning to make the leaves is particularly useful, because you can make so many things using a really simple technique. The only reason I haven't given this 5 stars is because some of the bead stock and quality wasn't what I'd expected - although it was still perfectly nice to work with.

Very enjoyable time. Well organised and enthusiastic teaching of the craft. Everyonebobviously enjoyed the course as the time eemed to pass so quickly. I would suggest the length of session should be 4+ hours so that more can be achieved and allow a coffee break.

I requested that the date of my class be changed, albeit a few days before I was scheduled to take part in the class, but I did not receive a response so unfortunately I did not attend so therefore I lost my £45.00. I fully appreciate that it was within the 7 days before the class but I am very disappointed that I did not even receive the courtesy of a reply.

Who would have thought i could turn up with a piece of material and leave with an amazing pair of pyjama bottoms ! Sarah Jane was a great teacher , explained things in such a way you felt like sewing was a complete norm to you . I'll be back to make a cushion in September. X

Thank you so much to Annie and Jess for making our daughter's party a lovely occasion. They were so welcoming and made it fun and insightful. They also handled a load of off the wall questions from our group of 10 year old girls with aplomb !! I'd highly recommend a party at Craft My Day x
Emma ODonnell
11 Jun
Great - I’d never touched a sewing machine before my lesson and left 3 hours later having made my very own tote bag! Sarah-Jane was a great teacher. I’ll definitely book on to other classes to learn how to make cushions, make up bags etc. Highly recommend!

Thank you so much for my daughter's sewing lesson. I am very grateful for how well she was welcomed, put at ease and helped to get to grips with the machine. The teaching was gentle, well paced and lots of fun. She loved it and was delighted with her finished bag. She can't wait to join you for your summer holiday kids' sewing club!

My daughters tie dye party at Craft my day was amazing. The ladies made it so much fun, and were very friendly and helpful. All the kids had a great time, the t shirts were fab and my daughter can't wait to try more crafts there. From a parents view it was the easiest party to arrange as they do nearly all of it, so I was able to enjoy the afternoon too. Will definitely be back

My daughter had a really lovely 7th birthday with family and friends making tie dye t-shirts (and extras). Leigh and Annie made the experience enjoyable for the kids and had everything laid out following Covid guidelines. The kids would have preferred the music a little louder and maybe a playlist of songs playing throughout but otherwise had no complaints at all. They left with their tee’s and knowing how to do it at home if they got the opportunity. Lovely ladies and would highly recommend 😉

I have had a wonderful time; Rachel is a superb teacher and extremely patient with us beginners, with clear, concise, and easy to follow instructions. I have learnt so much in such a short time, and it has given me the confidence to take my sewing further.

I never touch or use a sewing machine, so I am a complete beginner to learn how to use one and certainly did not expect to come away with a bag made by myself at the end of the 3 hours lesson ! I thoroughly enjoyed the practical lesson demonstrated and the interaction with the teacher is most valueable in grasping the concept of sewing and produced an item in such a short time at the end ! Amazing ! Thank you very much .
Julie Anderson

We had the best experience at Craft My Day choosing to make Gnomes from Powertex which now have pride of place in the garden. Our tutor was knowledgeable and patient and the COVID safety measures in place are impressive. We had a fabulous 3 hours getting messy hand and sculpturing our masterpieces which will last for years. Can highly recommend and will be back for another class soon thank you

My daughter and I joined Rachel this morning for a lovely time. We enjoyed moulding clay shapes, sorting through so many bits and bobs, trimmings and materials to create our own unique pieces. We learnt how to use the powetex- Rachel says it's addictive- I can see why! It was amazing to see how a grey mess, once dried and a few marks of colour added was transformed into a beautiful piece of artwork.
Lisa Pelluet

My daughter and her friends loved their time together being creative. She came out beaming with pride at the items she had made. She made beautiful mosaic coasters which are now always placed under our cups of coffee. Thank you Rachel for a brilliant 3 hours.

She explained things very well and what a selection of bits to decorate with. Class could hve done with being slightly longer as i just finished on time but 2 of the other ladies didn't. perhaps another 1/2hour All in all a great morning

We would all be interested in doing further jewellery-making or other craft workshops with Craft My Day. Thank you!

Polly
22 Feb
This was a well led and extremely relaxing class to attend. We were shown examples of what could be achieved in the session, some technical pointers and clear safety instructions. It wasn't long before we were 'hands on'. All through the session were encouraged to try our own styles but assistance was always prompt if we needed it. The refreshments were most welcome. Our glass was fired, beautifully packed and available at the workshop on the day promised. Clare was extremely sensitive and aware of what we would like to take away from the course. I would thoroughly recommend that anyone should try this craft.

Everything you need provided to make one of a variety of needlefelted animals. There were a good variety of kits to choose from and tips and help along the way if you needed. Also good to leave with the materials to complete at home if you didn’t finish.

Fabulous course. I was afraid of my sewing machine when I started, but not now. With Racheal's great teaching and guidance I made a tote bag and origami box a make up bag and pyjama bottoms. I now feel confident to tackle sewing great things on my machine.

Lisa was very patient, relaxed and encouraging. She followed up on the course with extra notes. We really enjoyed ourselves. However the room was rather cold and should have been heated!

Thoroughly enjoyed our Gnome making worksheet with Rachel. Such a fun, relaxed evening. Rachel explained each step really carefully and made us feel confident and completely at ease. Would highly recommend her workshops!

I really enjoyed attending the course each week. By the end of the 4 week course I had made a baby sized patchwork quilt. The course gave me some good basic knowledge and has inspired me to continue to develop the techniques and make some more quilts.

This workshop was so much fun! I went with a couple of friends, and immediately we were put at ease, by the friendly teaching style, relaxed approach and atmosphere. The outcomes look so impressive, but it's so simple! Details were also given as to the best places to buy materials and a worksheet to continue at home. We would love to come back to create another macrame masterpiece! If you are thinking about booking, do not hesitate, book now.

We had a fantastic time with Vicky making our macrame hanging pot holder. She was patient, knowledgeable and made us feel at ease straight away. It was like spending a morning with a friend. My mum and I are very pleased with our finished product. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if a pot had been provided to complete the product.

Couldn’t have been better. Rachel is a great teacher, making everyone feel at ease. Brilliant for beginners as each class teaches new skills leading up to the final project. At the end of the four weeks I had a pair of wearable pyjama bottoms cut from a pattern! I will definitely be signing up for more courses. A very enjoyable way to spend a Saturday morning.

Had a fab time making a footstool. Bob has a wealth of knowledge and experience in upholstery and he was a great great tutor to us, explaining everything in a very clear and friendly manner. He was also very committed to making sure all of us completed our projects.

This was a really fantastic course with Bob Lyons who was a great teacher - so patient and helpful. We learned loads of techniques- especially using the curved needle to sew impeccable corners. Thoroughly recommend if you would like to make a beautiful bespoken footstool.

I attended the upholstery course on a Saturday morning for four weeks. Bob, our teacher was professional, knowledgeable and very patient! He was happy to explain tasks numerous times and was reassuring if things went slightly wrong! I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would recommend it to anyone who may be interested. Bob was so generous with his time and my footstool takes pride of place in the lounge receiving total admiration from the family. Marianne Carnegie

I treated my daughter to the powertex taster workshop and so pleased I did. We haven’t got messy like that together since she was about 10!! She is now 30...It was great fun learning about this art medium and we both came away really pleased with the frames we had created. We will definitely be back to do more.......thank you Rachael

Had the best time. Loved it. Could have happily stayed all day. Tiffany was lovely. She helped and advised when needed, but at the same time let us get lost in our creations. Thank you again. X

There was a calm relaxed friendly atmosphere in the small class.It’s something I’ve fancied doing for a while but not got around to it ,now I have the basic knowledge I feel confident to go ahead with other projects.In fact,I’ve already ordered some felting equipment to get me going!! I really enjoyed this first introduction to crafting and I’ll certainly be back for more Thank you Angie x

I really enjoyed this workshop. The technique was clearly demonstrated with lots of examples and there was plenty of support and inspiration from our friendly course leader, Rachel. It was good fun and great to have a successful piece of work to take home. I would thoroughly recommend the Needle Felting Workshop and Craft My Day, Worcester Park.

I was a complete beginner, I knew nothing about Powertex except that I wanted to use it in mixed media work. The teacher was knowledgeable, informative and very helpful and friendly. The venue was ideal for crafting - a large table in the centre of a clean, bright orderly room. There were lots of examples of previous work on the walls and other crafts too for inspiration. There were plenty of resources to choose from and the tutor guided everyone through the process. In the time we had. I learned a lot and put some of it into practice very quickly.

The process of creating a glass coaster and dish using fused glass to decorate was carefully explained and demonstrated with the aid of finished examples. We learnt about appropriate health and safety issues, how to cut and glue glass and how to develop a design using a range of prepared coloured glass pre-cut in different shapes and textures, including some ground into quite a fine powder. The fusing process involving the kiln was explained and we then completed the design and making of 2 coasters and a dish which the teacher took away to be fused - the finished products to be collected at a later date. The teacher was extremely informative, helpful and friendly and everyone was put at their ease. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the workshop which I think could be described as a mindful experience. The venue was easily accessible and comfortable with all the necessary resources and equipment on hand. The studio workshop was well set up with appropriate attention given to health and safety.

Excellent course for beginners! Made a shopping bag, a zipped make up bag, a piped cushion cover with a concealed zip and a pair of pyjama bottoms! Quite an achievement considering the fact I had never used a sewing machine before. Rachel is a gifted teacher with endless patience for beginners. She is a fountain of knowledge and always helfpul and smiling. Venue is easy to find. Tea / coffee and biscuits were offered at each session.

Powertex. Learned about products. This is ideal for complete beginners in this field, as I was. Teacher demonstrated and explained a lot, answered questions. Ideal venue for a variety of crafts - bright and sunny, big table in the centre, lots of material to choose from and many art and craft items on the walls and around the room. Rachel was lovely - friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Great value for money. I might well go again, even although it’s on the other side of London. This was an afternoon well spent. Thank you Rachel!

What a great way to get an introduction to a potential new hobby. Tiffany was very clear and helpful with the instructions in a fun and safe atmosphere. If you are looking to pick up a new hobby this is the place to start I for one am hooked on mosaics. Loved it!!!

I had always wanted to do mosaic and this was a brilliant introduction and very empowering. Everything was provided without restriction (I was also encouraged to take some tiles, etc home so I could finish) and venue good. Tiffany was a great tutor, very helpful and encouraging. A very positive experience. Power text next I think.
