 Elle Caldicott ~ Designer / Maker & Teacher

I'm Elle, the designer / maker behind The Handkerchief Tree, which I run from my home studio on the moors above Holmfirth in West Yorkshire. After three years studying at St. Martin's College, in the beautiful Lake District, I qualified as a Primary School Teacher who specialised in teaching art. After four years as a classroom teacher, family commitments drew me away from the classroom and I decided to set up my own business making and selling a selection of my wares online, as well as teaching others the skills I feel so passionate about.
I now love to teach adults and children alike, sharing my time between teaching and creating. I can be seen out and about all over Yorkshire at different craft fairs and events, as well as at a handful of carefully selected shops.
