Craft, creativity, productivity and being able to work with our hands is such an important part of what it means to be human. For many of us, this can become lost amongst the busyness of life and what is deemed to be 'essential'. For many of our residents and clients, this goes a stage further - it has not been lost but possibly never even discovered.
To make something out of base materials is deeply satisfying and incredibly encouraging for the individual. And if that item is of a quality which is high enough to pass on to the general public, for a price, enabling materials to be purchased for continuing projects, the sense of purpose and achievement for the individual is even greater. Between the craft room and wood workshop, we are able to offer a great deal of variety.
PLEASE DO CLICK ON OUR GALLERY LINK TO SEE SOME OF THE PROJECTS THAT WE GET UP TO @ GOOD SOIL.
At Good Soil Craft our objective is a clear and challenging one: to be able to produce good quality, well designed items which, rather than covering the cost of time taken by the maker, cover the cost of materials plus a little more which can be put back into funding craft activities.
So rather than trekking around our much loved home and lifestyle stores, looking for that perfect gift which has been flown to our country from less fortunate parts of our world, made for next to nothing by skilled craftspeople from afar, why not shop local for a similar price and support the work and vision of Good Soil instead?
