Craft Nation was born out of my passion for art and craft.

I enjoy the creative process and take pleasure in passing on my knowledge to others.

Over the years I have run craft workshops for both adults and children in shopping centres, after school, public events, hens night and birthday parties.

Really fun class, lots of sweets and extras available for decorations.
MESSY, so wear an apron or old shirt if you're worried about your clothes.

Emmy was very friendly and helpful. The class was well organised and resourced. There was good communication about the location and I now have a lovely Christmas wreath. Would highly recommend.

Emmy was an exceptional teacher who shared invaluable knowledge and insights insights succulents. Her tips were practical and her teaching style made learning a breeze. The venue itself was nothing short of amazing - it exuded a cool and spacious vibe that added to the overall experience.

The class duration was just right, allowing us to absorb all the information without feeling overwhelmed or rushed. And the best part? Every single person in our group left with a sense of delight after creating their own succulent masterpiece.

I am eagerly anticipating watching my creation flourish in the upcoming months. The added bonus of being able to repurpose these succulents in my garden is truly great. I recommend this class to anyone interested in succulents - you won't be disappointed!

Emmy was great and very knowledgeable and helpful to our group. She helped up and provided the perfect amount of support which also giving us creative freedom.
The venue was not the original one booked, but it was still a great spot and very convenient to get to. The lesson was great value and my whole team (We went for team bonding) loved the whole experience.

the Succulents used are so different form the ones shown in the picture, also the outcome looks different, a lot thinner.

My 15 year-old daughter participated in this class and has made a beautiful succulent wreath that will take centre stage on Christmas Day. She enjoyed the class very much.

Teacher of as lovely. The room was a little cramped. The sessions are a little short for the work to be done.

Emmy was great; she was patient and fun. I did the class online and there was nothing lost in the streaming. I was in the comfort of my home and participating in a creative activity. Win-win! The package came early so no stress about getting the supplies before the class. I really enjoyed the process. Thanks guys!

Everything was great - just maybe little bit more time explaining children about activity during class - but my daughter like it - thank you

Sunny Wu Sep 2022


I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a team activity to do remotely that is fun and different. Emmy was great at facilitating the eight of us, who had little to no experience, and we all had a lot of fun. Thank you!

1:1 support was provided so my daughter could complete the activity. Time was given to allow questions.

The class was super cute, majority of the attendees were children (adorable). Although, my friend and I were the only adults without any children with us we still had a great time building our fairy houses

Love that this kit is now non streaming.
Sooo much more stuff came than I was expecting and it's a full size mask with an elastic strap, perfect for costume parties, venetian nights etc, wonderfully packed & came so fast, can't wait till I can do their other masks.

My 12 yr old daughter and I really enjoyed the online class whilst in lockdown . There was a delay with the kits being delivered to my house; I advised Emmy and she very kindly dropped replacement kits to my house.

Emmy was friendly and explained each step to painting the mask. She was very patient waiting for us to catch up to her. The class did go longer than the allocated 1 hour; Emmy was happy to stay on the zoom meeting until we finished - she didn't hurry us even though we were over time.

I would definitely recommend this class. It was fun and easy to do.
