New Year

We are very much looking forward to 2018.  Lots of new ideas from all our lovely suppliers.  In the meantime we'd like to share one of our personal favourites of 2017... the lobster bauble.  We think a lobster is a perfect way to see the New Year in.  Happy 2018 everyone and thank you very much for supporting our small business.  It really does make a big difference, best wishes May x

So...

There are lots of lovely things making their way here but if you would like to make something unique then why not join us in a class this Autumn?

Willow classes by the Riverbank

We are delighted to say that our day classes have really taken off.  For many of us it’s a real treat to get some time to do what we really enjoy or just try something we haven’t done before.  But last weekend a group of six did just that.  They joined our rather excellent tutor David to make willow hares.  Most of the class were novices in the art of willow weaving and by the end of the day, despite the sore fingers, they all turned out some very individual creatures.  It’s really interesting seeing how everybody’s creation turns out,...
