Claire Grantham, Card Maker, Crafter & Project Manager
Each week in Creatives on Speed, Joanne Oatts talks to creative thinkers, makers and doers from all walks of life - about creativity and how they use it in their work.
This week: Claire Grantham, Card Maker, Crafter & Project Manager
New York-based Londoner Claire Grantham is a crafter and card maker extraordinaire - and self-proclaimed marker pen obsessive. She’s also a highly respected and experienced project manager in the creative industry.
Claire tells us how she discovered the world of crafting, the differences between the UK and US crafting communities, and how her project management skills really raised her crafting game.
We learn about the school project that nearly put her off creative activities altogether, and how she organises her time to make creativity and play an essential part of her day.
