All About Reef House

We all need to find time and space for a bit more creativity in our lives.    

Here at Reef House, we can help.  In term time, we run a rolling programme of creative and inspiring workshops and short courses in a small and relaxed setting. We also offer the space for you to run your own workshops too.


Whether you want to learn new skills, practice old ones or just enjoy a relaxed day out we do it all

All About me

Hello! I am Rachael Janes.


I have always been a maker: I get it from my mum who was an art teacher and was forever making things: food; costumes; clothes; knitting; embroidery.... the list was endless.   Inevitably, that urge to make rubbed off. 

Over the years I have dabbled in  all sorts of making. I absolutely love to cook and like nothing better than feeding a houseful . When the weather starts to get cold in Autumn you will find me making 'stores' cooking up vast pans of chutneys and pickles.   

Since moving to Norfolk I have really become quite obsessed with indigo. The more I do it the more I realise I am   utterly in love with the beautiful natural blues that I can create and the hunt for more and more patterns and designs. There is so much to learn with natural dyes and I am loving this journey of discovery. 

Reef House Make & Do is my new venture and I so am excited to be able to combine my love of teaching with all things crafty and to hopefully get you excited about making too. 

 I hope to see you soon and do some making together.
