Dust and Things - The Nifty Gift Workshop

We haven't always been this passionate about what we do for a living.

It feels like only yesterday that Sian-Louise was buried under assignments in university and I was working 9 'til 9 for a finance company. We both craved a more creative outlet.

For as long as I've known Sian-Louise she's always dedicated time to hand-making things for her friends, things that her friends had never even asked for usually, things that would arrive in the post unannounced and be swiftly displayed on the fridge or mantlepiece as a reminder of the warmth they felt when received.

Our friends have learned that if you need something hand-made and personal, you go to Sian-Louise.

One late night, I found myself helping Sian-Louise to design & make a friend's wedding invitations. Whilst cutting & gluing we fantasized about changing the guest bedroom into a studio, buying a fancy laser engraver and spending our days creating and sourcing great products that would end up hung on people's walls for years to come.

Ever since I was very young I've had a passion for design and building things. Whether it was making simple computer games or attempting to burglar-proof my bedroom door using bits from around the house, I've always loved being creative.

At the start of July 2013, with a touch of summertime optimism, we un-screwed the guest bed and set about building something that we could be truly proud of.
