COVID-19 Fandangle Crafts

News: Fandangle Crafts is still selling online (In my Etsy shop)

All my work is carried out in my own workshop at the end of my garden, just the job for lock-down. I have a good relationship with the post office where they are staying open and have a one-in one-out procedure with a 2m zone. I discussed with them about putting the delivery people at risk and they felt that this wasn’t the case. They will have no contact with the customer and will sign on their behalf when they stand back from the door with the parcel ready to be picked up. Of course I will shut my shop should I or anyone i have been in contact with contract COVID-19.

News: Pyrography boards now in my shop

I was planning to sell wooden heart shaped cheese/chopping/trivet boards with pyrography images on, all handmade, at events this year. But as more and more of my events get canceled I have started selling them in my Etsy shop. Take a look at them in my gallery page HERE

Handmade

Fandangle Crafts make things by hand, this takes time. Using recycled materials and reducing our carbon footprint in the process, to make wonderful Art and Crafts, ensures that when you buy something from Fandangle Crafts you are supporting these efforts.

Fandangle at events

If you would like to visit and get touchy-feely with Fandangle Crafts, as sometimes you really can’t appreciate what something is like until you have, you can visit one of the events we are attending, see the Events calendar here.
