Try a new craft

Our virtual classes and workshops are a great
place to try something new; for more in-depth learning
choose a 1 to 1 session. Remember, we cover more
than just electronic cutters: paper craft, mixed media
and traditional art techniques are also covered.

Plannercraft is the culmination of 30 years of creative practice.

Natalie has been crafting since she first got hooked with her Mom’s beads, cartoons and crafty projects. She attributes the crafter, designer and artist she is now to her Mom.

As Natalie has travelled through education she has covered fashion and textiles design, graphic design, multimedia and interactive design, before commencing 20 years industry experience in graphic design. She is a pro-level user of Adobe and Affinity apps and has an industry background in print and image production.

She started writing her first book in digital crafting all the way back in 2000 and this has fed directly into the content in our magazines and books.

2020 saw the release of our first “proper” book in “Go Create: Beginners Guide for ScanNCut” joining our two mixed craft titles with projects for the ScanNCut.

Her sixth book is all about designing your own files using vectors and is available now along with a Project Notebook targeted at electronic cutter users. Natalie is currently writing the sequel to the Beginners Guide for ScanNCut.

Creativity is at a great junction between the traditional and the digital; but there isn’t a more exciting time, nor more accessible, than right now.
