Two Short Planks will be joining us for the first time at our Easter Boutique Market on April 15th. Get to know all about them and their history.
How did Two Short Planks start out?
I always wanted to give woodwork a go but never had the time. Then a couple of years ago after finding my Granddad’s old tools I decided to do a short Adult Education Course where I learnt to make a simple box. I loved it, and decided that this is what I wanted to do. Shedding tears, sweat and plenty of blood along the way I have since taught myself lots of new skills and continue to do so as the learning never ends.
How has Two Short Planks developed since then?
What started out as a hobby has steadily grown and that hobby has now engulfed us completely, so we have decided rather than fight it, we’d embrace it, run with it and see where it leads.
What’s your favourite thing to create?
Anything really. We get real satisfaction knowing that we have both created and made items from scratch but we also enjoy bringing life back into unloved and unwanted furniture.
What do you love most about attending craft fairs?
We like to see unique and non-mass manufactured items that aren’t available on the average high street.
Will you be offering anything special at our event?
Because we never know what type of wood, materials and items we will be working with from one week to the next we never know what we might have. So we hope to bring a collection of unique items and pieces along with items that we make a on a more regular basis.
Why not give them a follow on Twitter and check out their Etsy shop.
