Handmade craft gifts
Turn on to Church Street from Westgate and huddled on the corner you’ll find Crafters Cottage. This quaint and quirky location is perfect for this surprisingly spacious craft shop that sells a host of handmade gifts, from candles to soap bouquets. It’s also where Julie, who created Crafters Cottage runs her craft workshops.
Candles, soaps, gifts and more
Crafters Cottage has a range of handmade gifts at prices that will make you smile. Ideal for treating friends and family, Julie’s candles, bath and body gifts are made with ingredients that are as natural as possible. All packaging is recyclable and, gifts such as her shampoo bars contain no plastic packaging are great gifts for environmentally minded friends.
Julie also sells craft kits, which make much-loved gifts for that person who has everything. All products are available online or can be bought directly from Crafters Cottage on Church Street.
Julie’s interest in making candles, soaps and other gifts stemmed from her previous business of making and selling cosmetics. It’s an area that she’s now returned to with her new organic mineral skincare and cosmetics range.
It’s Natural skincare and cosmetics are produced to Julie’s exacting standards using natural, organic minerals. The entire It’s Natural skincare and cosmetics range is available online and from Crafters Cottage shop.
Demand for Julie’s craft workshops has grown and grown over the past few years. People travel from all over the UK to take part in her candle making, furniture painting, soap and cosmetic craft courses.
It’s a great day out and, whether you want to make candles, soaps or give a new lease of life to that tired old chest of drawers, you’ll have a great deal of fun while you learn new craft skills. There’s also a delicious afternoon tea included with most courses.
As well as the scheduled courses, Julie also runs corporate events for companies, and courses for community groups and hen parties. Her children’s birthday parties are particularly popular. Parents love the fact that children get to make the content of their goodie bags, including magical unicorn bath dust!
If you live in the village or are planning a trip to Honley soon and have always wanted to try something new, why not book one of Julie’s courses? It’s a great way to meet new people and, you never know, it might just lead to a new business of your own.
