Cheryl Findlay has been interested in craft from a young age. Her mother, her mother’s aunt, and her mother’s best friend were all Milliners. Her aunt and grandmother were always making things with their hands. Whether it was cooking, knitting, crocheting, sewing, or gluing, Cheryl was surrounded by craft.
Over the years, Cheryl has attended many painting workshops with different Folk Artists or Decorative Artists to further her knowledge and diversify her painting and teaching skills. She finds inspiration in her students and nature. Working mainly with acrylics, oil, watercolor, inks, and scratchboard, Cheryl is able to paint on wood, concrete, metal, fabric, canvas, paper, glass, terracotta, and ceramics.
Wood Be Crafty is the concept of its owner, Cheryl Findlay. In 1993 Cheryl set up a business where people could come and relax while learning different crafts over a cuppa and a chat. With her experience and knowledge in the craft industry, Cheryl’s concept has grown, it now offers many weekly Adult classes, a weekly Children’s After School Art Class, and a School Holiday Program.
