64 Million Artists

64 Million Artists

Crunchbase Website Twitter Facebook Linkedin

64 Million Artists is a national campaign to unlock the potential of everyone in the UK through creativity. We use a simple, fun and free process: Do, Think and Share to support people who’d like to use creativity to express themselves, get a bit more of a spring in their step, or connect better with others.

We believe passionately that everyone has the right to a creative life, that we are all instinctively creative but that often gets knocked out of us at school or work. With partners we are developing simple ways of helping people do stuff again, to just have a go without worrying about being good at something or being an expert.

We work in a number of areas: With the arts and cultural sector (including the BBC on Get Creative) to ensure everyday creativity is encouraged and celebrated across the UK. With employers to bring fun and regular creativity to the workplace.

With towns and cities to see what happens when you catalyse larger numbers of people to unleash their potential. And with people effected by stress, depression, anxiety or other wellbeing issues to explore how everyday creativity can make a positive contribution to individual lives across the UK.

Sign up to our weekly Monday Challenge here We hope you enjoy exploring our site. Do keep in contact by emailing us.

64 Million Artists was founded by Jo Hunter and David Micklem who want to change the world for the better by placing creativity at the heart of British life.. .

The Readicut Wool Company Limited was founded in 1928 in a tiny shop in the West Yorkshire City of Wakefield. Mr Ralph Hirst had the rather bright idea of supplying the wool used for home rug making already cut, (rather than on skeins, which had to be painstakingly cut to length in the home), hence the name Readicut.

He decided to further promote his Readicut Rug kits, containing the ready cut wool, high quality hand stencilled canvases and a latchet hook – by mail order – quite an innovation in 1928. Today, after 80 years of trading we’re still a successful business.

The rug canvases are still carefully stencilled by hand in Lancashire in order to ensure our customers throughout the world receive the highest quality rug kits, that are so easy and satisfying to work. Over the years hand knitting, paper craft, needlecraft and jigsaws have been added to our range of craft products, thus carrying on the Readicut tradition of providing you with everything you need to enjoy your favourite craft.

We are delighted to bring you our Readicut online shopping experience – Readicut by mail order is a name our customers can trust, for good value products and exceptional service – and we are happy that the same can be said for our web site at www.readicut.co.uk.. .
