Ministry of Handmade is all about . . .


We teach made-by-hand skills to give you knowledge and confidence to make something for yourself.

Encouraging Creativity

Immersing yourself in the creative space is great for your soul – it can even restore balance in your world.

Empowering People

With skills and encouragement we empower you to renovate, re-purpose, reuse and reinvent!

Endorsing a Sustainable Lifestyle

We believe it is easier to make a real difference to the health of the planet once we have skills and confidence.

We teach online and face-to-face!
