I'm in the process of collating articles, features and other interesting things. Check back here for more updates!


I'm Kirsten, and I started Quernus Crafts in 2009 after taking the plunge and leaving a 15 year career in law to pursue my life-long passion for arts and crafts.

I am completely self-taught, and have moved from one medium to another as the inspiration takes me. At present, I am completely hooked on polymer clay and making cute wee creatures. 

As well as making wee creatures, I work for a local arts organisation promoting and supporting local artists.

Why Quernus Crafts?
quernus adj. [Latin, quercus; cf. querneus] of oaks, oaken

Oak trees hold a special significance for me, which is why I want them to play an integral part in the identity of the business. There is something magical about each small acorn holding the potential to become a magnificent oak tree with all its natural intelligence and beauty. I firmly believe that everyone has this potential within them, and part of my ongoing mission is to give others like me the chance to follow their heart and allow that acorn to become the mighty oak it longs to be.
