Hello, we're Gem and Sue from Mayinspire. 

We have a passion for making craft fun. Based in Woolston, Southampton, we deliver colourful craft workshops. We specialise in workshops for adults and are known for our non-judgmental and relaxed approach. We don't think traditional craft has to be boring. We take old school crafts and give them character. We design projects that adults can proudly show off at home. We have a number of workshops which people can book onto, or we have party packages for baby showers, hen parties and community events.

Mayinspire was born from an obsession with craft and a need to socialise in a creative environment. Since launching in 2016, we have hosted a wide variety of craft groups in Hampshire. We have taught over 100 different types of craft skills, which include dream catchers, quilling, embroidery, pottery painting and 3D pictures.​ We both come to every workshop so you can be guided through your project. As well as our experience, we arrive with loads of craft supplies, instructions, examples and innuendos. It's all about enjoying getting creative, even if you aren't normally creative.

Many of the people that attend our workshops, use it as a great way to relax while making unique gifts for people they care about. Others personalise their home or learn new skills. It's lovely to see the different styles which people bring to the group and we all chip in with ideas when someone gets stuck.

As a mother and daughter duo, this family run company means a lot to us so we our heart into everything we do.

Oh and we are DBS checked, previously known as CRB checks.
