For many years I have worked with wood, making furniture as a hobby and animal figures for our daughters and their friends.
I always wanted a nativity set but didn’t like the massed produced versions that blend in with the festive decorations with their true meaning lost. I finally made one in a design that would look right in any interior, be it old cottage or modern apartment and not date. It is my hope in fifty years a child will set out the nativity set, remembering their grandmother telling them the story of the birth of Jesus. Anyone can make a set like these but I sell them for those who are unable to do so.
How the ‘The Farm Workshop’ started
The name The Farm Workshop seemed a natural choice as we live on a small holding with chickens, cattle and sheep. I make Nativity Sets, Christmas decorations, egg storage racks and Nest Boxes that are ideal gifts for those special people. I hope they wi
ll give you as much pleasure as I have had making them. You can now also find me on Etsy and Amazon Handmade.
Living in a way that doesn’t hurt the planet
I make everything from pine I have purchased from the building industry. They are the off-cuts from making things like stairs and would have been burnt as waste.
The waste I create I burn on our wood-burner heating our house as a ‘green’ fuel.
