Hey there, we're Christelle & Stefanie

Our mission is to share step-by-step lesson plans, business training and teaching resources that will help you start and grow YOUR OWN kids crafting club.

 

Whether you want to learn how to turn your passion for crafting into a meaningful side-hustle OR want to get crafty with your kids at home.

You've come to the right place!
But perhaps you are thinking one one of the following:
  • "I love crafting and could do with some extra money and/ or I want to create a small business that works around my family's schedule... but I don't know where to start."
  • or "I can't do it because I'm not creative enough and/ or I don't have formal training in business and teaching."
  • or you are struggling to find truly engaging, cool, creative and age-appropriate lessons to do with your kids.
We get you. We've been there!
But before we get ahead of ourselves! Let's start at the beginning. :)

How We Went From Overworked Architect and Engineer to Helping Dozens of Women Build Kids Crafting Clubs They Love. 

Hey there, we're Christelle & Stefanie, sisters and founders of Canvas Club and the Creative Crafting Club.

Before we started our kids crafting club Christelle ran her own architectural firm and Stefanie worked as an industrial engineer in the online retail sector.

While we were so grateful to have successful careers, something was just not sitting right...

Christelle was about to start a family, looked for flexibility and purpose and wanted to follow her passion for crafting and Stefanie was very eager to get out of the rat race and follow her dream of becoming an entrepreneur.

Something had to change.

We got together over sushi and spoke about the possibility of creating a career and business that could bring us fulfillment, flexibility and most importantly that would enable us to be creative and empower others to make a positive impact too.

That’s how Canvas Club, our kids crafting club was born.

We didn't do it perfectly from the start.

We've made a lot of mistakes and have gained heaps of learnings along the way. 

Over the years, we've had the privilege to teach thousands of children in our kids crafting studio in sunny Cape Town and have learnt sooo many lessons along the way. 

We had moms reaching out to us saying: “We also want to do this, can you teach us how?" and “I want to do these crafts with my kids at home, where can I get the instructions?”

Long story short, we ended up franchising Canvas Club to over 50 locations in South Africa and Namibia. 

 

But what happened then was… the applications did not stop, they kept rolling in from all over the world, literally THOUSANDS of applications.

We were over the moon! And we had to figure out a way to share our business learnings, lesson plans and all the crafty goodness with women that shared our passion GLOBALLY.

Luckily being an engineer and creative, Stefanie was able to package our Canvas Club franchise offering into an fully-online Membership site, and the Creative Crafting Club was born.

 

The Creative Crafting Club online membership is an affordable monthly subscription that gives you tried-and-tested creative crafting lesson plans, teaching tips and business tools to start your own kids creative crafting club from home, at schools or in your community. 

Basically everything that we have learned from running our own club and our franchise and more.

After successfully helping dozens of women to start their own clubs in their communities, our hope is that we’ll be able to help you do the same.

Creativity Awaits - Ready, Set, Go!
