Craft Arena


About the Instructor

Denise Gannon started Craft Arena in 2007 when she was finding it difficult getting the supplies she needed for her City & Guilds Creative Embroidery course which incorporated many textile techniques, including wet felting.

“I wanted Craft Arena to be a one-stop shop for Textile Art and Needlework supplies, to be able to support up-and-coming and established textile artists, and to provide workshops to demonstrate a range of creative textile techniques to new starters and more experienced artists and crafters.

“I have stitched for almost as long as I can remember and am passionate about needlework, art, craft and creative design of all kinds, especially so when I can incorporate my other interests into my work.

I get inspiration from a number of sources, but most often from literature, archaeology and history, my other main passions. I love the imagery used in ancient civilizations, particularly British, Persian, Egyptian and Greek culture and these often feature in my work. I often incorporate textural and mixed media techniques into my designs, which are usually further embellished using hand embroidery and free machine embroidery. I have a City & Guilds Diploma in Embroidery, and am a certified Zentangle® trainer.”

Craft Arena specialises in soft crafts, textile art, mixed media

machines, overlockers and speciality machines. Their Art Gallery hosts regular exhibitions and is available for hire.
