Elaine Harvison is a crafter, artist and mummy to 2 kids in Dungannon, Co. Tyrone.
With a love for all things art from a very young age, she attended Armagh College where she completed A Level Art, GNVQ Art and Foundation Art, followed by a 3 year degree in Fashion Design from University of Ulster.
Elaine has always had a huge interest in fashion, especially bridal wear, and had her own bridal business for 10 years stocking designer dresses and also designing and making her own bespoke bridal wear.
With her experience in jewellery making from university, Elaine also continues to makes children's jewellery.
In more recent years, Elaine has focused more on her art background and has displayed abstract art paintings in her own local art exhibition. In a recent exhibition of her works, she combined her love of creating with her keen interest in recycling and displayed unique and very unusual denim handbags that she had created using old or damaged jeans.
When not running her event dressing business, Elaine loves to craft using all mediums from paint to string! Upcycling, macramé, pom-poms, sewing - she has fingers that don't lie idle :-)
Elaine has led Crafternoons with us with great success, and we're looking to running more of these in the future.
