Shelley Williams, Instructor and Owner 


For twenty years, I taught students, trained teachers and leadership teams in systemic change, led school district initiatives and managed teams for success. Throughout all of these roles, I enjoyed soaping, scrapbooking, painting, stationary and a variety of other crafts to disengage and relax. 


I began to incorporate paint workshops during the lunch breaks of my trainings and conferences. Teachers would spend their time with me and paint the flowers I'd guide them through and I began to get think. "I would love to do this always." So I pursued my desire to teach and create with crafts and bridge the two.  I was encouraged by the words of Christ, " If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes." (Mark 9:23). Took me a little over a year to get this big move together, but in August 2019,  CRAFT + LIGHT opened  on 2nd Street in Naples Long Beach, CA. and I have not been happier.
