CRACKPOTS offers art-based fun for children of all ages

Babies (with help) can use their hands or feet to record a unique baby plate, which can include date of birth; name; etc., either as a birth momento; a first birthday record or a unique christening gift.

Young children can enjoy CRACKPOTS as a birthday party treat, with activities for girls and for boys.

Older children in youth clubs or YFC groups can enjoy CRACKPOTS activities, creating artwork for themselves or as gifts for family or friends.

CRACKPOTS for Adults

CRACKPOTS goes to groups and clubs, such as WI groups or Mothers Unions. We give an introductory presentation on artistic techniques; help participants to plan their projects then help them to achieve something unique and personal.

CRACKPOTS caters for private parties; groups of friends at home; family groups or fundraisers, either at a chosen location in Mid Wales or at their home in Trefeglwys.

CRACKPOTS for Special Occasions

CRACKPOTS can do commission work……for special gifts or even for businesses.

We can entertain kids during weddings or parties.

We can also provide a range of wedding items, from large wedding plates, to be signed by wedding guests, through to small, decorated party favours to add a personal touch.

About Crackpots

CRACKPOTS is a small family business, set up in 2005 by Cheryl & Tony Orme and their children, Sammi, Pippa and Ollie.

CRACKPOTS is based on a passion for arts and crafts and a wish to make craft-working more accessible to individuals and community groups in rural Mid Wales

Cheryl & Tony enjoy working with groups of all sorts, from children’s clubs (both are covered by CRB checks) through to Senior Citizens Groups.

The emphasis with CRACKPOTS is of fun, combined with personal achievement, through creating unique artwork.
