Andie Reeves is a Cape Town-based teacher and maker, specialising in embroidery, weaving, crochet and sewing. What started as a love for making outfits for her Barbies and watching Project Runway with her mom has developed into a 16-year career of making things, from woven wall hangings to wedding dresses. She hosts workshops at various Cape Town venues as well as a regular Craft Night at The Ladder on Wednesdays.

The Cape Town Craft Club was initiated by Andie as a means to amalgamate her passions: creating, teaching, and fostering community. For her, there’s no greater satisfaction than crafting something with your own hands, and she aims to provide everyone who attends her classes with the opportunity to experience that joy.
