About The Arty Crafty Place

A great big hello from The Arty Crafty Girls!  Welcome to our little world of gorgeousness.  We started life as part of The Pottery Place paint-your-own-pottery studio in Witney, and then we spread our wings and became The Decopatch Place.  Then we widened our horizons with loads of lovely decoupage papers, and found and created SO many more lovely ranges that we became The Arty Crafty Place.  There’s no stopping us now!

Maggie is our creative whirlwind, fired by coffee, who escaped the ratrace to do something she loved.  She created The Pottery Place, a little oasis of creativity in the Cotswold market town of Witney (you can find more about The Pottery Place here).  Always on the lookout for something new and fabulous, she is an unstoppable force for The Arty Crafty Place, having designed our ARTDeco, Weave Art & Block Craft collections.  Chances are if you’ve met us at a show she’ll have had a chat with you – Maggie does love to hear what our Arty Crafty friends are up to...

Tess runs the day-to-day activities of The Arty Crafty Place.  She’s like Google for our product ranges - if you need to speak to someone for advice on techniques, choosing papers or finding the perfect gift then she’s your girl!  Her travels have inspired her love of our Art Journalling range, her scrapbooks are just gorgeous.

Anya can often be spotted whirling around the lanes nearby on her bike, and her boundless energy comes to work with her too, she’s a whizz at picking and packing your orders – she’s the reason so many of you compliment us on our speedy service!  Anya loves all the bits and pieces that you can find in our Other Arty Crafty Stuff collection.

Anna is our ‘showgirl’ – always on the road with Maggie at Shows and Craft Fairs, spreading the Arty Crafty love.  Fortunately neither of them need much sleep!  Anna is a big fan of our Weave Art collection.  She’d never tried weaving before we designed the collection, now she turns out wall hangings and purses faster than anyone else…

Rachel is the technical one – usually found attached to her laptop she is the graphic designer and copywriter for the team, with a love of spreadsheets and hair accessories.  Block Craft is her favourite of the ranges, she claims it’s so simple and effective that even a geek can do crafting!

Come on in and join a whole world of gorgeousness!
