We were just a Project Manager and Countryside Ranger from Saddleworth, who used to spend our weekends unwinding from our stressful jobs, by visiting beautiful villages and being inspired by wonderful gift shops, craft shops and galleries. Everytime we would come home bursting with ideas and designs that we could make, knowing we could make better quality items from scratch but not thinking we could actually make the leap, especially after I had received a school Art report in the 80’s saying ‘Victoria does not have a creative bone in her body’. Dave did not believe this of course and one evening he disappeared to the cellar and after a few hours emerged with a set of wood Christmas Decorations for me to paint. These flew out and we realised what a great team we made and Woozlewood was born.
In the last 10 years we have designed, created and sold 1000’s of Woozlewood products, medal holders, beer trugs, bath trays, signs just to name a few. Thankfully, Dave graduated from the cellar to his own workshop and for the last 4 years we have had our own gift shop, Authentic in the beautiful village of Uppermill. Our team has grown; we have a new advisor and product tester, Oscar age 10 and our marketing video guru Kasper age 5.
Dreams and hardwork do pay off!!
