I live in rural Lincolnshire. I make items from wood , that are mainly locally sourced. Most of our wood , to make bowls and wood turned items are from the Revesby Estate woodlands, located in the Lincolnshire Wolds. The woodlands are managed to maintain an ecological balance, trees are replaced as one falls.
All my waste is used in a sustainable way. The saw dust is used for pets, the local farmer has some for the horses. The off cuts and scrap wood are used in my wood burner.
After an accident at work , in 2001, I had a great deal of time off work and then a successful career. This also included representing my union as the disabled national officer , for the East Midlands region.
I was made redundant in 2015 , then the month afterwards had a car accident. aggravating my disability and starting physiotherapy again , I felt that I wanted to combine my exercises into having an end result. The solution were my crafted items. I have been crafting ever since with help from my husband.
I attend craft events and am a registered trader with my local council. I advertise Feel Good Crafts at all the events and retail venues that I attend, spreading the feel good name , where I can. 2017 has been a busy year for me . Trading as an independent trader with pop up markets all over Lincolnshire. I feel that this website has given me the confidence to craft and not feel alone in trying to reach my retail dreams.
