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 now focused most of my attention on helping others develop and refine their own crochet skills.
In 2014, I began sharing my love of crochet, by running small intimate crochet workshops in my own home. I have run classes through my local community college and now run them from my own home studio in the Southern Highlands, NSW. I hold a variety of different classes to suit all skill levels, starting with the basics right up to the more advanced. You can learn to make granny squares, toys, baskets, rugs and lots more.
I also handmade crochet accessories including project bags and stitch markers and sell a variety of supplies to help you on your crochet journey. In 2018 I began selling crochet kits that include my own patterns and all the wool you need to make a specific project. These have become very popular and I hope to continue adding to my list of kits in the future.
