Dad was more practical and taught me bricklaying, plumbing and electrical work - but you won't find any of that in the shop!

Kat decided that she would join me as a guest designer and unearthed her creative side too. making things that her children love!

What do we make - just about anything! We'll have a go at any challenge thrown at us. We always pick up the gauntlet and, like terriers with bones, run with it until it's "just right".
