A BRAVE woman from Bromsgrove, who has fought breast cancer, has turned her hobby into a business by opening a new craft workshop and gift shop.

Jayne Doig was on the lookout for a workshop space in March as her home was no longer big enough to cater for her crafts and has ended up with a shop too.

Dragonfly, on Worcester Road is a bespoke gift shop, with workshop space and rooms to hire out.

The 49-year-old has not only beat breast cancer but also sufferers from a brain disorder which affects concentration, however she uses crafting as art therapy and hopes to show others they can too.

Jayne said: "Eventually I would love to teach art therapy in one of the workshops upstairs as it has helped me so much.

"I want to give people the confidence to let go and just run with their idea, forgetting about everything else.

"When I was diagnosed with breast cancer five years and I could not even string a sentence together so to go from that to how I am now is amazing."

The shop, which had its grand opening on June 19, is a space for crafters to sell their gifts and art.

Jayne rents out space to creative enthusiasts and has proved so popular there is currently a waiting list.

Jayne, a former accountant added: "The first week we opened was phenomenal and it has been so well received.

"I have two rooms upstairs which I will be looking for staff to host craft workshops or to hire out."

During August Dragonfly will be home to children's craft workshops, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 10 to 12pm.

Again, these have been overwhelmingly popular and there are very few spaces left.
