My range of pretty, hand-crafted signs are made from start to finish in our workshop; including sawing up the wood, sanding, painting, drilling, wiring and bow-tying and wrapping! The hessian bunting is also made from scratch.
I was initially inspired by my partner's upholstery business where I help out occasionally, and as we share the workshop, I am always surrounded by beautiful fabrics and leathers and I often use the opportunity (and his equipment) to do a bit of re-upholstery of my own, and I am hoping to add small footstools and occasional chairs to my range of products on here in the future.
However, it was the off-cuts of wood, remnants of hessian, jute webbing and leather scraps, that got me really excited. And then I discovered chalk paint and the creative possibilities became endless - my head spins with new ideas everyday - all handmade in our little workshop in Burton-on-Trent.
