At Wombledon, the Wombled Workshop are local creative carpenters who ‘make good use of the things that they find’. They take things that ‘the everyday people’ dispose of, and make them into something new! They have a small workshop based in Wilby, making garden and housewares from recycled and repurposed materials to sell locally. Here Jamie, workshop owner and local multi-skilled handyman, shows us around Womledon:
Examples of what they have Wombled include furniture, shelves, bird feeders, childrens garden furniture and even craft knives. Here are a few of their creations:
Yes, they even make eco-friendly firelighters from scrap wax and workshop shavings. Clean, slightly scented burn for minimum of 5 minutes, giving plenty of time for fire to catch. You can buy what they have made and find out more about them on their Facebook page.
