Hi, I am Katherine and I am Welfare and inclusivity officer for CraftSociety. I am here to make sure that everyone is enjoying their time at craft and that everyone gets any help they may need. I am always available to talk to at the sessions and am happy to meet outside of sessions for a chat about what I can do for you. I work with the rest of the committee and the Student Union to make sure craft is accessible to everyone and to encourage anyone and everyone to come along and join us.


Maddie Stewart - Vice President and Social Secretary

Hello!! As VP/Social Sec, I help to plan and run socials for the society, sometimes liaising with different societies to try out something new. We’re aiming to have a range of socials (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) each term and would love for you to come along to one and get to know you! Alongside this I help with running the society and working on branding and promoting the society to help get more members and even better craft activities.

Holly Wright - President - Contact: hw300@sussex.ac.uk

Hiya, I'm Holly and as president I make sure we run weekly craft sessions, trying to offer something new each time! I liase with the committee to make sure we are bringing our members as many craft opportunities as possible, running extra events and holding collaborative events with other societies. I also make sure our society is ticking of the Leaf Award Sceme criteria, in order to run our society efficiently and gain funding for the many craft resources we supply our members with. We love having new members come along each week so do feel free to pop into any session you'd like!
