Wearable art is just so special.  One-of-a-kind garments and you will never see yourself walking down the street!  Felted, woven, knitted, crocheted......the World Wearable Art Expo last year showcased some amazing vision and talent. Check out the WOW 2010 Winners here.

And speaking of design and talent, have a look at the beautifully simple 9 Fruits fruitbowl from Adam Aberle.   Coming two finishes - oiled and limed - and in a flat pack as well!!  What vision.  

Design and worksmanship abounds : have a look at this stunner - birds' eye huon pine, myrtle and blackwood combine in this "for ever" jewellery chest and mirror.  Not to mention the stylish Lampshade and base from An Element of Style.

Come and see us - open 6 days 9.30 to 4.  Closed on Mondays.  Right opposite Mill Lane in Oatlands at 112 High Street. Check our STOP PRESS for additional changes.

We are happy to pack and send, so if you see anything on these pages that you like, email and we can arrange your purchase for you.

Ready for the Launceston Cup - Dolly wears Balloon Vest in silk and alpaca and blue Cloche Hat in embellised alpaca both by Juju; needle felted bag by Ripping Yarnz and Fork Pendant by Supply Bay Design.  Add some pants or a stylish skirt and off we go!
