Making a special gift…

There’s nothing more meaningful than a gift bearing the unmistakable touch of a creative kid. A hand-drawn decoration makes a  gift precious.These easy to do crafty gifts will make any adult smile at Christmas.

Description: With a pencil kids make a drawing, then with help will transfer the image themselves onto a piece of pre-sanded pallet wood, which we then finish for them in pyrography, creating a lovely effect.

The child can be hands-on giving the piece a light sanding and waxing, and then gift can be taken home after the  workshop.

To help us feel in the Holiday spirit, see Kolesnik Kraft’s lovely selection of handmade wooden crafts, wine holders, nativities and miniature winter houses, and to help us help out our feathered friends during the winter – beautifully crafted bird tables.

The rocking horse man….

David McPherson is a local rocking horse maker and restorer. He designs and makes traditional Victorian style, hand carved, wooden rocking horses in three sizes using the best of timbers.His horses are bought by fans from near and far, and no doubt become special friends to the lucky children who get to play with them.

“I have always loved working with wood and helping to keep an old craft alive gives added enjoyment. All horses are handmade, meaning no two are exactly alike, giving each it’s own individuality and character….”

For more information visit David’s website.

David will be bringing an example of his beautiful horses to the Arts & Crafts Market on 13th December, and will be available to take orders on the day.
