Driftwood sailing boats
Dominique is a maker of decorative sailing boats using locally collected Cornish driftwood. She uses recycled fabric for the sails where possible. Unlike mass-produced items, handmade decorative items are special, unique… one of a kind! They are sustainable and bring something positive to the house. There is love behind each item. Personalised sailing boats can be requested.

A Plastic Bottle and a Paint Brush

My name is Nikki Wallace and I make flowers from reclaimed single use plastic bottles! I was inspired nearly 4 years ago to try to make something beautiful out of a product that was going to landfill. My exploration has led to a wide range of beautiful unique flowers, roses, Lily’s, daffodils etc. Also bird feeders (our waste helping not harming wildlife) and wind spinners… my journey continues 😊
