Local Business Among Best in Britain

April 11, 2014 9:28 am


LOCAL vintage and modern craft workshop Brewhouse Crafts, based in the Victorian building that houses Making it! Discovery Centre, has been voted among Britain’s best in a prestigious national competition.

The adult craft class held once a month in Mansfield scooped one of the top awards in the Classes For You competition, run by Britain’s biggest parenting site: Netmums.  The UK-wide competition, which has over 1.7 million members who were eligible to vote, was launched as a chance for people running adult classes to be recognized for their hard work serving and improving the local community.

Class Coordinator, Linda Boult, was delighted to be crowned a local favourite. The new range of workshops was designed to offer adults the opportunity to be creative, meet new people and learn new skills in a safe, comfortable environment, where parents could escape the norm and try their hand at crafting.

Beaming Linda said: “We are thrilled to win the award and would like to thank everyone who voted. After only a year in operation, we are delighted that Brewhouse Crafts has been able to inspire and touch the lives of so many mums in the local area.”

The Brewhouse Crafts class will now be honoured with a coveted gold listing on the Netmums site, used by over a million people each week, along with a special ‘Netmums Favourite’ certificate to display in their class. They also win a badge for the Brewhouse Crafts website and a place on the Netmums Award Winners’ pages.
