About Our Site

CraftExpert was formed to offer a unique reference point on great arts and craft ideas.

Here at CraftExpert we share with our readers information about all types of crafts, from knitting and sewing through to candle making and home crafts – with much more in between!

Whether you are looking to learn a new craft or want to brush up on some long lost skills then you'll find plenty to interest you within the pages of CraftExpert. We have essential information about how to start a new craft, advice on improving skills and some interesting craft projects for beginner and experienced crafters alike. In addition to our articles, you'll also find some interesting videos. These are perfect for people who like to see, as well as read, about a new craft or technique.

Our aim at CraftExpert is to provide you with the best possible information on crafts of all types and to help explore and develop your creativity and artistic skills. Our content is free from sponsored editorial.

If you are looking to learn more about a specific craft or are simply looking for inspiration for a new crafting project, then take a look through our pages to find out more! You are very welcome to leave a comment or ask us a question.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding CraftExpert and a number of similar sites.
