Your One Stop Upcycling Shop
I am so happy you have found us.
WARNING - this is a very addictive place to be!
So, take a while and have fun browsing the 'shop' tab with the beautiful range of upcycling products I have on offer.
For inspiration view 'Past Projects' and if you want to purchase a one off upcycled piece then 'Furniture' is where you want to go.
For Christchurch & Canterbury peeps there are a range of workshops to choose from on Saturday mornings.

Peggy | Thanks for a lovely class yesterday Karen. I really enjoyed it and certainly learnt a lot. Looking forward to more.
Liz | I so enjoyed the time with you yesterday - your abundant knowledge and passion for he craft was so infection. I hardly know where to start. Plus I spent the evening reading the manual while my husband watched sport. So I feel well armed with practical steps and tips. Thank you for your generosity. I can't wait to get started and am planning to start with a sort out of all materials and tools we currently have in the next couple of weeks. The hardest thing for me will now be deciding the colours. I will definitely keep intouch and share what Dianne and I get up to
