The Urban Crafters Shop was initiated by the partnership of three local makers - Cheryl, Barbara and Anne Marie. We have secured a one year lease in the busiest part of town and want to nurture new talent and support the clever experienced makers this region has in abundance. It is now run as a collective with a third of our members working in the shop with us.


Urban Crafters Pop Up has operated as a Pop Up shop in Dunedin from 2017. Run by Cheryl, this Pop Up offers crafters the opportunity to be in a central location at the busiest shopping times. With each passing year the concept is developing and the leased premises grow in size to accommodate more Vendors. Cheryl has made the Pop Up a successful and much anticipated event.

Barbara has developed her small craft business Whimsy, which started out in her garage 7 years ago, moved to a garage shop in Mosgiel, and then concentrated selling online and at markets. She has culminated precious skills online and in small business whilst raising her son.

Anne Marie has she has been sewing & knitting for many years, selling her products at local craft markets. Having three partners initially, has enabled us to be open seven days, and still have time to make for the shop individually. Now we roster approximately twelve members on in a week which keeps us all fresh and inspired. 

When you buy local you are supporting a local family.
