About: The Crafty Gentleman

DIY and crafts for men The Crafty Gentleman blog

Welcome to The Crafty Gentleman!

I’m Mike Aspinall, a full-time Digital Marketing Manager and obsessed DIY’er. I passionately believe that crafting is not just for women! So I set up this blog to encourage more men to into the world of crafts. I post original DIY & craft projects, recipes, tips and crafty inspiration, and I also regularly feature other male makers and small business owners.

I absolutely love working on my blog; it’s as much of a passion project as it is a side-business (which blogs should be, right?). Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to appear on national television alongside Kirstie Allsopp, have my story printed onto Innocent smoothie bottles, been interviewed live on BBC radio and so much more. I’ve had my work published on many influential websites and I’ve collaborated with a great range of other brands and bloggers.

Above all, what I love is making things! So join me on my crafty adventures, as I explore new techniques, meet other makers and share my inspirations with you. I can’t wait to have you on board. :) Happy crafting! – Mike.
