Meet the Maker – Chapel View Crafts

Continuing our series of meet the makers we have Cheryl Cunliffe of Chapel View Crafts.


Can you tell us a little about what you do?

 I make things from polymer clay. From tiny dollhouse scale miniatures to food themed bag charms and jewellery.


How did you get started? chapelview3

I bought a dolls house! From there I started making things to put in it and found a talent for sculpting food miniatures.


Where are you from?

I live in valleys and love the fact that the countryside is on my doorstep but Cardiff is less than an hour away.


chapelview2What’s your favourite part of what you do? 

When I get comments like ‘it looks real’ then I know I’ve done a good job!

What’s your favourite item to make? 

My favourite make is the latest thing I’m working on which are some shortbread hanging tree decorations.


What inspires you? 

Does spending too much time on Pinterest count?


What was your proudest moment? 

Being invited to Etsy made local at the tramshed!


If you won a million pounds what would you do? 

Buy a lot more craft supplies! 


You can find Cheryl on Etsy at any time, and of course she will be with us at Tramshed on the 4th of December with her amazing makes!
