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.

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

The tutor showed us lots of lovely examples of her work, there was plenty of choice on what to do in the class. I did a butterfly. 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

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.
Lise

Brilliant workshop! Rachel has been lovely and patient ! Perfect to start learning to saw and being proud to wear your "creation" :) We were a group of 4 people and Rachel gave attention to each of us. No time for frustration, just enjoyed seeing the skirt building up weeks after weeks !
Tania
30 Jul
I really enjoyed these classes and definitely learnt a lot from them. What I liked the most is that you have plenty of time to finish your skirt which makes the process less stressful and more fun to do and allows time to correct and learn from the mistakes that you will make as a beginner. I would definitely do more classes here.

Brilliant. The tutor was lovely and explained everything so well. My first proper outing alone since lockdown so I was very nervous but very reassured by how well set up the workshop was in these unusual times. Thank you so much.

My daughter and her friends had a great time making bath bombs, she couldn't wait to get home and have a bath. The bath bombs looked really well made and fizzed a lot when placed in the bath. A great activity for anyone 6yrs+. We may well book another session with the mums too!!

I had a one to one class with Rachel on making a zipped cushion.......one word FABULOUS! I hadn’t used a sewing machine since leaving school and was a little nervous but Rachel was brilliant at explaining things and she was very patient. I spent the best 3 hours doing something for myself that I throughly enjoyed, haven’t done that for a long time. Thank you Rachel I will be back soon, Steph x

My husband booked the first workshop (Make A Bag) of this 4 week course as a present. Having only done limited sewing whilst at school, I found the class a great introduction into learning how to use the sewing machine and using basic stitches. We were also given paper templates and scrap fabric in order to get used to using the machine and to practice sewing with different stitches and experience how to handle the fabric when sewing in straight lines, around curves and changing directions. By the end of the class, I came away with a beautiful shopping bag that was going to come in handy and that I felt very proud of. Rachel was very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. All materials were provided and the studio was well equipped with everything you would need (including tea and biscuits!). We had a group of five people which was nice as it was a friendly environment that everyone felt they could ask questions as we went along or general tips and advice on sewing. The studio is a great space which also showcases items that have been made in other classes. There’s so many other art/craft classes that I now want to try! I found the first workshop and my experience very inspiring and this led me to book the other 3 workshops on this course: Making a zipped Make up bag, Make A Cushion Cover with Piping, and Make Pyjama Bottoms. I have thoroughly enjoyed all these workshops (not to mention using my creations!) and my sewing confidence has increased during the course. I would recommend this to anyone interested in sewing or looking to learn some new skills.
Lena

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.

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.

It was a very good course - enjoyable, well structured and paced. The teacher did a really good job in building confidence. I learnt alot and was proud of producing something each week - especially the pyjama bottoms - which I wear all the time!

I would absolutely recommend Successful Sewing Secrets at Craft my Day. 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 would definitely recommend this course and I'm already looking at which classes I can take next.

It was a nice small class so perfect for making sure you get that one to one with the tutor. I left feeling confident to go home and make my own lined curtains as a result and I was extremely pleased with the sample one we made on the day. Definitely worth it!

I had a really enjoyable and relaxing afternoon spent learning how to create a professional lined curtain at Craft my Day. My tutor was really friendly, patient and knowledgeable - I came away with a sample curtain and printed instructions so that I can have a go myself at home. I will certainly return to try out other classes.
Anna
16 Mar
Very interesting class! I made a 1 foot tall sculpture I could take home with me! Great stuff, you learn all about Powertex - fabric hardening paint and powder inks. Happy to go again!
Arielle
25 Jan
I never expected a single class had so much scope for creativity! Really informative class and the skill was easy to pick up for the non-expert. Rachel was very knowledgeable and supported us all well, our final pieces completed in 5 hours and uniquely different from each other -I got a few new ideas from watching my classmates too! From one class alone I feel confident and can't wait to pursue new projects inspired by the material. I am very interested in coming back to Craft My Day to see what else I can take up.

We had such a lovely morning and learned a great deal about paint effects. Vicky and Rachel were very welcoming and knowledgeable and we had the opportunity to practice lots of techniques which we will be able use on our own projects. Katharine has already bought the paint for her project! This is a great workshop to get you started on chalk painting. Laura ( and also on behalf of Katharine)

Great atmosphere. We were a small group which made it very easy to follow the different techniques. The material provided was fantastic and the 3 hours were very hands on. The trainer (sorry, I’m terrible with names..) was very nice and helpful. I’ll definitly go back and try another workshop!

Valerie

I had a great time in our small class of three beginners. It was a three hour morning session, and we were plied with coffees, teas and biscuits throughout. Vicky was very thorough and patient in explaining what to do. I came away with a sample board of the 4 techniques that we had learnt (plus a printed aide-mémoire), as well as two picture frames to which I had applied my choice of paint techniques. I would have liked to have had the option of some bolder paint colours with which to work, and had the opportunity of trying out gilding wax. All said, it was a good introduction.

Having tried to make a necklace before and failed I found this class was essential for getting over all the mistakes I had made. I now, after making a beaded bracelet, have worked out what all the tweaks are necessary to make some beautiful necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The instructor was very friendly and with cups of coffee and biscuits , all my problems have been answered. I now have been so enthused to order, from Amazon , some more items to add to my kit.
Nasreen
13 Jul
This class is really amazing for learning the basics to beading. At first I thought the time frame wouldn’t be enough to learn everything but it’s a very detailed class and goes into great depth. The course leader is great and helping you methodically and understand the different ways of doing things. She’s also very flexible - would definitely recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn the basics and elaborate from there.
Valeria

I booked the workshop for myself and two friends. We all really enjoyed it and the Tutor was lovely, very helpful and knowledgeable. We all found making the jewellery relaxing and we came away with some lovely, unique items that we made. It was good that we could book the workshop for just the three of us too. We would all be interested in doing further jewellery-making or other craft workshops with Craft My Day. Thank you!

The PJ ( bottoms only) workshop review. Very nice studio with lots of light. Good Janome machine with a variety of stitches. Pleasant teacher. Workshop was extremely basic. I felt that it should have been advertised as a very basic beginners class. For three hours I had expected a more detailed pattern with at least a separate waistband. I finished one hour and fifteen minutes prior to the end of the class. I would have finished earlier if an overlocker had been made available. Used a stich (similar to an overlocker) which gave a good finish on the sewing machine but this was not as quick to use. However I was the only attendee and have been sewing for 18 months. A good class if you have none or little experience of sewing. A cloth copy of the two piece pattern used to make the Pajama bottoms was given to me as I asked but I was told that normally this doesn’t happen.

Louise Roberts

How to mosaic. The teacher was well informed & there were lots of good resources. It might have helped to have an advance email about what we were doing so I could prepare a design - we completed a lot but time was tight. The venue was nice but could have been more spacious
Katie McPhee

The mosaic class was really excellent. Tiffany was a very patient and knowledgeable teacher. She provided lots of options and seeing examples of completed work was really helpful.

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.

Rachel was such a great teacher, she went through every detail step by step. so it never felt overwhelming.

Thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was my first time using a sewing machine and I have managed to come back home with a tote bag made by me
Jenny Yip
30 Apr
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 .
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!
Julie

This was such a great workshop. So many materials provided for use and a great way to unwind from the stresses of the week by using a medium that I had never used before which was very tactile and easy under the expert tuition of our tutor. Really great value for money and nothing is too much trouble for the host at this venue. I can highly recommend and will definitely be back thank you

My girlfriend booked this for me as she wanted a unique House for the garden I didn’t really know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. I had a great time getting mucky and creative and was pleased with my end result A Wizard tower rather than a fairy house! With an abundance of tea and biscuits it was a really good day

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.
Angela

So pleased I booked in for this needle felting class. 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
Deborah

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.

The workshop was great. I enjoyed making a bee. Needle Felting is very therapeutic, there is definitely something relaxing about stabbing a roll of wool to make an interesting, unique creature. I would recommend this to anyone.

The Powertex Taster Workshop is the third craft class I have attended with Craft my Day (Mosaic workshop and Making a Cushion Cover being the others) and another five star success. Powertex is a fabric hardener and is used to create effects to decorate surfaces (in this first instance a bland picture frame) that with embellishments, painting and glazing techniques turn them into veritable works of art. Everything provided, including superb (and friendly) tuition and all materials. A very happy couple of hours spent doing this. Can't wait for the Autumn so that I can book some more.
Laura Symes
26 Mar
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!
Laura Symes
19 Jul
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.

If you are looking for a course where you learn by doing, this will be perfect. Rachel explains step by step everything as you go along, taking time to make sure everyone follows. The course is well designed where after 4 weeks (12hrs) you end up with a tote bag, skirt and lots of practical knowledge. Highly recommend this course to anyone!

Rachel was extremely patient and helpful! Definitely an experience worth trying out as while I may not be the best sewing maestro, the vibe of the class, chat and perfectly imperfect skirt made it all worth it. Highly recommend this.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and can't wait for the weather so I can show off my skirt. Rachel's enthusiasm is contagious and she has a lovely way of encouraging you to have a go, enjoy and not worry too much. Rachel spends lots of time with each person so the pace, advice and tips are tailored to each person. I would really recommend this course to anyone whether you are a sewing zero or just looking to pick up some confidence. I can't wait to now move on to dresses!!

Great course - we learnt how to make a skirt from a pattern including fitting the zip and button. Rachel was very good at explaining things clearly and was also very patient. Would definitely recommend without hesitation to anyone thinking of doing this course. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Craft My Day and will no doubt be booking another course very soon.

I’ve just finished this course and am now really inspired and motivated!! Rachel is patient, understanding of all of your fears and concerns and explains things in such a simple way that it automatically instils confidence. It's been great to spend time with like-minded people who all want to ignite their passion for sewing. This is the best thing I've done for myself in years and there's no other place I would have done it - Craft My Day is a real safe space and I'd recommend it to everybody.

I really enjoyed my sewing class Rachel is great at explaining everything and will happily re explain or demonstrate when you are not sure. It was also great being part of a small group and so you can learn from each others choice of design such as wanting the skirt a different length and how to adapt the pattern. I felt a great sense of achievement to make something that I can wear and fits me perfectly. Looking forward to attending another class in the future.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

My daughter and her three friends had a really lovely time, and Lee went out of her way to do lots with them once they finished their first tie-dye. And they all came home with a T-shirt and a cushion. Would highly recommend as a fun outing for kids. Thank you!

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!

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.

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

I had a brilliant morning making a powertex Christmas wreath. The teacher first explained how the class was covered under COVID rules then we were shown step by step how to make a wreath using powertex material and gave us information on the history how powertex started . I very pleased with the wreath that I made within a an enjoyable tutorial.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the session, having never used Powertex before. The three hours passed so quickly. Everything we could have wanted was provided. I really enjoyed the session and look forward to trying other new crafts.
