Hello therE

Crafting is changing. 

Ellbie Co. Offers craft kits and workshops for both experienced makers and complete beginners who have only just taken up crafting, to get inspired and to get making for themselves!

With a strong focus upon mindfulness we want everybody to be able to switch off - take some time out of the busy day to day and make happy.

When it comes to crafting we are all about the journey and enjoying the relaxing process of making!

Ellbie Co. was born in 2016 in Becci's tiny London flat.

After a year of work testing and designing, a move to Brighton, and several sleepless nights, our first range of kits was launched in 2017.


Now based out of a beautiful rainbow space in Sussex. Our aim is simple: To provide happy mindful craft kits for the new movement of makers. With original craft kits that are fresh, vibrant, colourful and easy to make.

We want makers to enjoy the relaxing crafting experience and be proud of the end result of their hard work.

Hence all of our kits are as beautiful and exciting as the images on Pinterest and Instagram that inspired you to start crafting in the first place.

We are so proud of our colourful kits!

All of our kits come with full colour instructions packed to the brim with photographs. To ensure your crafting experience is as stress free and fun as possible.

Every kit has been carefully designed, made, and packaged by hand in Sussex and the majority of our kit components are sourced from UK or EU suppliers and manufacturers.

But not as you know them...

From the minute you walk through the door you are made to feel welcome. We like to foster a relaxing party atmosphere at all of our workshops - with our friendly instructors on hand to answer any questions and help you along the way. 

It's a great excuse to try something new, all whilst having a laugh and meeting new people!

Make Happy

Crafting for mindfulness

Make happy is at the heart of Ellbie Co. We see crafting as an escape from the day to day and as a chance to spend time doing something relaxing and satisfying. 

As a result of this we have built a friendly community of makers in the make happy club who we send monthly free patterns, exclusive discount codes and other goodies to in our make happy club newsletter. 

All of our kits and workshops are targeted towards making items that bring a smile to your face but that also provide you with a chance to relax and be mindful.
