What is Craftiosity? We love crafting, we know it chills us out and makes us feel good. However, we're busy folks and we like things to be easy, especially when trying something new. We wanted craft kits with a contemporary vibe, we wanted variety and we wanted to make things we'd actually use. Voila, Craftiosity was born!
What’s inside the kits? Each kit contains all the tools, materials and instructions to make a finished piece. All you'll need to supply are household basics such as scissors, a pencil or a ruler.
How much skill do I need? We know you may not have explored a certain craft or process before - that's grand! Our step-by-step photo instructions and video tutorials will help you through.
If you're more of a free-styler, our instructions also include tips to make it your own way.
Our kits are designed for adults and can contain sharp elements / small pieces, but use your judgement if you plan to craft with your little ones.
