New Handcrafted Benches

We have a new selection of benches just in!

These benches has been crafted in-house as part of our popular “Heart of Wood” range.

They have been hand made using a range of locally grown timbers including Elm, Burr Oak and Beech.

Each piece has been constructed from wood that we have carefully selected for its own individual character and beauty, and are therefore all one-off original pieces.

Prices range from £149 to £249 and are available to view at our main showroom in Dumfries.

The Dumfries Art Trail was on the TV!

The Handmade Craft House featured on ITV's Border Life - did you see us?


Hi everyone, you may know that we are part of the Dumfries Art Trail – a collaboration of independent artists, makers and galleries all situated within ten minutes walking distance of Dumfries High Street.

The Trail was recently featured on ITV’s Border Life and you get to see around some of the workshops and galleries that make up the trail – including us!

The DART : Dumfries Art Trail coverage starts at about 12 minutes in, and we are featured at the 17 minute mark, but the whole program is really interesting.
