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