One Year On

  We have been in our studio a year now, we moved in early December 2010. This is what it looked like when we first saw it.

We landed on our feet when we knocked on the door at Horton's Yard, it is owned by the loveliest of landlords who is very supportive of small businesses and keen to get new life back into a place that has been a huge part of his life.  After lots of clearing, cleaning, painting, door moving, new wall building, staircase constructing, sink installing, the studio was transformed into how it looks now.

A bright and airy space that always feels like home. When we first moved in there were only two other businesses in the yard, a builders & a classic car restorer. Now we have Green Man Carpentry and their 18th Century barns and shepherd hut restoration. And in the new year Le Salon du Chocolat and Handprinted are moving in to the main building and joining our little community which is really exciting, and lovely that the yard will be full and busy again.
