Wh0 is behind Crafty Kids Club

Crafty Kids Club is a Sydney-based kids craft workshop, events and (soon to be) craft kits business, lead by me – Gemma Garratt, to do what I love, teaching children to get off their screens and use their imaginations and create things with their own hands.

When I became an aunty 18 years ago, I began teaching my nieces and nephews how to get crafty. I’ve organised many memorable craft birthday parties for them and their friends.

Since 2010 I started this business and I have honed my designing workshops and teaching skills with children aged 5-15 years at:

  • And now I’ve started this business, crafty kids club

As well as teaching these classes, you name the craft or sewing course and I’ve probably done it!  Latest class was macrame which I am going to convert into a children’s class.

I have a current Working with Children Check : WWC0868136E
