Create and Craft, the award winning multi – channel craft retailer, are thrilled to announce their latest new partnership with the Women’s Institute’s Denman College.
Denman College, based in Oxford, is the WI’s centre for learning, offering a wealth of opportunities to learn new skills on day schools and residential courses in the field of cookery, craft and lifestyle. Having just celebrated 70 years, Denman has grown from offering 159 courses in 1960 to now hosting over 650 in 2018 and welcoming over 10,000 students every year.
In August 2018, Create and Craft hosted their first, highly successful Denman day at the college, where WI members from all over the country were invited to attend, learn about Create and Craft, and take part in some exciting craft workshops with famous faces including Stephanie Weightman and Stuart Hillard.
Following on from this initial union, Create and Craft and the WI’s Denman College are now embarking on an official partnership together going into 2019.
Create and Craft Marketing Manager, Laura Powell commented; “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be building this new and exciting relationship with the Women’s Institute’s centre for learning at Denman. We can already see that Create and Craft and Denman are the perfect partners, with WI members at the Denman Day we hosted in August being so engaged with and interested in learning more about us as a brand. We can’t wait to build this relationship further in 2019 with some really exciting plans in store for the partnership”.
Marketing Manager for Denman College, Ruba Asfahani said of the partnership; “Denman is excited to be working with Create & Craft in 2019 to help enhance the importance and variety of the craft world! We’re looking forward to bringing new events, exclusive offers and giveaways in tandem with Create & Craft – so watch this space!”
