Hello, I'm Melody

I support & promote the creative practice of contemporary craft makers.

I run a creative consultancy that focuses on communication skills, particularly writing. I offer support to makers in finding their voice, communicating their practice and writing effective and exciting text for websites, applications and social media.

My approach is a friendly, conversational collaboration centred on dialogue and underpinned by a passion for communicating about making.

New FREE download

The summer is the perfect time to slow down for a moment, enjoy the long days and reflect on the first half of the year we've already had. Use my new Midyear Review pdf as a starting point for reflection and thinking about the rest of the year ahead.

New FREE resource

Ever wish you knew where to look for funding for your work or a new project? Well, wish no more! I've done the research so you don't have to.

This free e-flet gives you details of the main sources of funding out there for craft makers. It's a great starting point for your own investigations.

Downloads & e-books

I've created a range of free downloads and e-books you can buy all aimed at the needs of craft makers. From advice to emerging makers at the start of your creative careers to top tips on all the writing you'll need to do as part of your practice and business, these resources are designed to help make the communication you do about your work that little bit easier!


I send out a monthly newsletter with the latest news and updates about my services. It also rather handily contains a comprehensive list of all the upcoming deadlines, so you'll never miss that vital application again! Every now and then, when I've created new resources or offer new services, or amazing opportunities come up, I may send out individual emails letting you know more information.  It's also the place to hear about any offers or discounts. Don't miss it!
