Welcome to Castle Handmade.

 

Where the classic art of crochet has been revived to bring you beautiful items to gift to loved ones or enjoy in your own home.

With a background in teaching and a love of all craft, I created Castle Handmade after the birth of my son in 2012. I was drawn to the simplicity of crochet and amazed by what I could create using a basic ball of yarn and a small metal hook.

Whilst I am willing to try my hand at making almost anything and everything crochet, I have focused mostly on creating unique and timeless crochet blankets and baby gifts.

The crocheted items I make are inspired by nature and our beautiful Australian landscape, from the colours used, to the motifs you see within the pattern itself. These handmade timeless pieces will bring a touch of comfort and love into any child's space. When gifting a crocheted piece to a little one, you are sure to bring them an item that will be treasured for years to come.

What you see on this page accounts for hours and hours of work. I make each item with lots of love and care. Sourcing quality natural Australian fibres. I use a wide range of colours, perfect for all decors. I am always willing to make bespoke items to meet your exact needs.

I can create something special for you or teach you how to crochet something yourself. In 2014, I began sharing my love of crochet, by running small intimate crochet workshops in my own home, located in the Hawkesbury Region of NSW. I have also just published my first crochet pattern. You can find the free Snowdrops Beanie here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/snowdrops-beanie

 

Another great achievement was working in collaboration with Milka Interiors, to create a beautiful range of fruity decor items. A limited series consisting of 3 perfect pears and 2 adorable apples.

 

In 2016 I was commissioned by the Hawkesbury Art Gallery and Museum, to create a crochet "Flabbit". These are now available to purchase from the Hawkesbury Museum.

When buying an item from Castle Handmade you are buying an item made straight from the heart, that is sure to become a treasured heirloom piece to be passed on to the next generations.

 

Kindests Regards
