Katharine Wright

Leicestershire Craft Centre

Owner and founder of the Leicestershire Craft Centre, Katharine has been crafting since she was seven and her Mum taught her to knit – her first handmade gift was a knitted egg cosy for her Grandpa. She continued to craft all through her childhood, making dresses for her high school dances and knitting jumpers for friends while at university. After taking a career break to have her three children, Katharine rediscovered her love of art and craft and set up the Leicestershire Craft Centre to enable her to pass this passion on to others. Now Katharine teaches a wide variety of arts and crafts at her own venue in the Midlands, at crafting events, in schools and at corporate well-being events.
