We run weekly card making classes from our studio, with a new card being made each week. If you're interested in joining, get in touch or alternatively head over to our Facebook page to see what we're making next week.

Sewing Classes

Brand new in 2017, Crafty Corner will be holding a range of sewing classes from a beginners guide to sewing to project based classes. Visit our events page to see all up-coming classes or to book your place.

Workshops and Scrapbooking

We hold fortnightly scrapbooking classes, as well as hosting a range of workshops throughout the year, to help broaden your crafting skills. Visit our events page to see what we've got coming up and to book your place.



Irene runs the crafting side of the shop and can often be found planning next week's card class project or coming up with new ideas for her sewing classes.


Dave runs the ceramic side of things at Crafty Corner and can usually be found surrounded by children painting in the studio or out back glossing ornaments.


Situated in the lovely seaside town of South Shields, a warm welcome awaits you as you step through the door of our spacious, bright and what we feel is one of the best stocked craft shops in the North East of England.

We're very proud to have won Craft Retailer of the Year (North East) at the British Craft Awards 2014 and to have been shortlisted again in 2015.

We carry a massive range of craft items from all the major distributers, with new items arriving every week.
